At Monday night’s USD 208 School Board meeting the board voted, 6-0 to reapply to join the Mid-Continent League.
In May of last year the board voted to leave the MCL after 59 years and join the Northwest Kansas League starting in the 2013-14 school year.
Trego School Superintendent Dr. George Griffith said they will send a letter to the MCL asking to rejoin the league and they will also ask the NWKL to release them.
For Trego to be allowed to rejoin the MCL the superintendents of those schools would have to approve them by a two-thirds vote and the Northwest Kansas League superintendents would have to unanimously approve their release. Griffith said he thought it was “highly likely” it would happen, but he was not sure how soon it would happen.
Griffith sited travel as a big concern and said that going back to the MCL makes sense for them now. He added that they are in the middle of scheduling and it would be easy to make the schedules work.
If they are not given a release from the NWKL, Trego would have to stay in the league for two years before they could go somewhere else.
