After 59 years in the Mid-Continent League, Trego Community High School in WaKeeney is moving to the Northwest Kansas League. The move was approved by the USD 208 Board of Education, and will begin in the next academic school year (2012-13).
The move will affect area teams such as Osborne and Smith Center who are currently in the MCL.
Currently, the MCL has schools that range in size from 3A to 1A and it is believed that enrollment numbers were the biggest factor in Trego’s decision to move to the NWKL. In the current set up, Trego is the third smallest enrollment (113) in 9-12 in the 2011-12 School Year. The largest school in the league is 3A Norton with 219 students, while the smallest is 1A Stockton with just 86 students.
In the NWKL’s current landscape, the biggest school is 2A Oakley with an enrollment of 144, while the smallest school is 1A Hoxie with 87 students.
