Conference football no more

Some school couldn’t find more than four games primarily because they couldn’t get into a conference and no one would let them in.”

Every area had a few issues and so the state stepped in and came up with the District Alignment. “It is very similar to conferences for 9-man teams. We are just one big district (or conference) like we used to be.”

How does it affect our region? Well, Cromwell, Floodwood, McGregor, South Ridge, and Carlton are in District 9 North White. Wrenshall was also part of the district but could not field a team this season.
