I just finished writing a story for tomorrow’s paper, and here are some of the things I learned from making lots of phone and email contacts today …
–Prior Lake could be a big player in all this. I confirmed that Prior Lake is actively looking to leave the Missota for a new conference, and the idea of joining up with EP and the four Classic Lake schools is a real possibility as soon as 2010-11.
–Bloomington Kennedy and Jefferson could end up in the Missota by next fall. The move of Chaska and Chanhassen from the Lake to the Missota could pave the way for that to happen.
–Lake decisions could come quickly. Lake bylaws state that schools leaving the league must make that decision by Oct. 1 for the move to take effect the following fall. So if anybody wants to leave the Lake for 2010-11, they must decide in the next few weeks.
–This blog is read by some of the major figures in this situation. One of the people heavily involved in this told me today, “I read through some of the comments (after the MSHSL meeting), and I think some people who are regular bloggers are really right on with their comments.”
Nice going, folks.
