February 15, 2021 12:00pm
The Lakes Conference and its member schools have accepted a request from Western Christian High School to withdraw from the conference, effective and the end of the 2021-22 school year.
The Western Christian School Board voted to begin the process of leaving the Lakes Conference at a meeting on January 18th. Official action on the conference’s acceptance of thee request was taken at the Lakes Conference Superintendent meeting on February 10.
In submitting its request, Western Christian cited challenges, particularly related to travel, that the school and its student-athletes face when it comes to participating in conference competitions and events.
As part of this action, the Lakes Conference and its member schools respectfully request that Western Christian maintain its commitment to remaining in the conference through the end of the 2021-22 school year. Upon its decision to withdraw, Western Christian will be asked not to reapply to join the Lakes Conference for the next 10 years.
Western has been part of the Lakes Conference since 1997-1988. Over the past decade the Lakes has lost three school districts, Sheldon, Emmetsburg, and Le Mars, laving the conference with just six school districts.
In addition to Western Christian, Lakes Conference includes Cherokee Schools, Estherville-Lincoln Central, Spencer Community School District, Spirit Lake Community Schools, and the Storm Lake Community School District.
