STATEMENT FROM THE NORTH CENTRAL CONFERENCE (Indiana)
From Michael Austin, Sports Information Director
The North Central Conference (NCC) is neither surprised nor disappointed by the recent announcements of two of its member schools electing to join other conferences. The Administration and Athletic Directors of both schools were forthcoming with the process each of their schools took to make their ultimate decisions. As a result of the decision to leave the NCC, neither New Castle nor Huntington North High Schools will be eligible for any North Central Conference awards or to compete for NCC championships as per the NCC Constitution. As each of the schools makes their transition from the NCC to their new conferences, we wish them the very best.
The NCC Athletic Directors met on June 4th to discuss the possibility of both New Castle and Huntington North High Schools leaving the NCC and have a template plan in place to continue the goal of conference expansion.
As events unfold throughout the state among athletic conferences, the Athletic Directors of the NCC will continue to focus on what is best for the student athletes, coaches, schools and communities of the nine member schools in the NCC. The goal for the NCC remains the same; bigger, better, stronger and more exciting than ever.
