Wilmington school board to discuss leaving I-8

WILMINGTON – Another step toward the possible reconfiguration of the Interstate Eight Conference may take place Wednesday when Wilmington’s school board will discuss approving providing notice of the intent for Wilmington High School to withdraw from the current Interstate Eight Conference.

Wilmington was in a group of seven schools – along with Coal City, Lisle, Reed-Custer, Manteno, Herscher and Peotone – that informed conference members Streator, Sandwich, Plano and Westmont in an email on Aug. 28 that they will be exploring other conference options.

Seneca already has left the conference and will join the Sangamon Valley Conference for football and wrestling and the Tri-County Conference for all other sports and activities next year.

“There is an action item on our school board agenda to discuss our intent to leave the Interstate Eight,” Wilmington Principal Scott Maupin said. “As we told the other schools in the email, we are exploring other conference opportunities.

“We will have a discussion at the board meeting about potential action. There is a plan in place.”

Maupin declined to elaborate on what that plan may be until after Wednesday’s 7:30 p.m. board meeting.
