As I reported earlier this month, three metro conferences have formed a five-year agreement to assist the five-school Classic Lake in finding non-conference opponents. (The earlier story can be found HERE.)
The Classic Lake, Northwest Suburban and Lake (which will become the South Suburban next fall) issued a formal announcement this morning. The first steps in the agreement will take place this fall, when two teams from the NW Suburban and two from the South Suburban will meet Classic Lake teams in football. Other sports will follow in later years.
All the 2010 football matchups are not set. We do know that Osseo of the NW Suburban will play at Minnetonka of the Classic Lake and Hopkins (Classic Lake) will go to Centennial (NW Suburban). Games between Classic Lake and South Suburban teams have not been decided.
Here's the full announcement:
Representatives of the Northwest Suburban, Lake and Classic Lake conferences today announced an agreement regarding the scheduling of non-conference athletic events over the next five years.
