Olympia to join Sangamo Conference starting 2022-2023

Post by Leatherneck »

The SJ-R reports that Stanford Olympia will be replacing the departing North Mac (Virden) as the 10th team in the Sangamo Conference starting in '22-23:

This will leave the Illini Prairie with nine 11-man football playing members (Champaign St. Thomas More will be switching to 8-man but IIRC is staying in the league for other sports), and the undesired result of someone ending up with an open date each week of the season.

Leatherneck, just to give you a heads up, we do have a catch all thread for stuff like this: viewtopic.php?f=103&t=105346

I do like the move for Olympia, especially in basketball as the conference will be even stronger in that respect now. At first I thought they may be a geographic outlier but the SJ-R article makes it seem like it won't be.
