Either way.. our conference needs to dump Pekin and Cville. 

8 team conference, keep Austin to appease Scottsburg. We would get 3 out of conference football games that way. 

A lot of rumors the past year that Pekin was looking at moving to the Patoka Lake conference, and that conference would gladly take them.  But, apparently the vote ultimately was to stay put.  Surprised me because they would be more competitive in all sports in the Patoka Lake.  Their girl's basketball state championship may be blinding their administration from reality.

As I am not familiar with the district, how are their other sports?

Mediocre to poor in all sports over the last 25 years or so.  Used to have a top flight baseball program 20-30 years ago.  I think an individual girl's tennis player may have won or at least went to state a couple of years ago.

Unfortunately for them, with the blurry district lines, elite athletes find their way to Jeffersonville or New Albany with little or no effort.  And, Providence, the major private school in the area, is located in Clarksville and siphons off some as well.

I know a lot of it is their AD. He made a comment before saying the crowd we bring is a big gate for them, but if they were playing more games where they would have a legitimate chance to win.. I would say they would have a lot more of their own fans their.

Understood.  Just my hunch but I expect some "small" schools will be "folding" my way in the next decade.  

Hamilton High School up here is a prime example. The school enrollment now is around 70. They last had a football team 6-7 years ago. Still have both a boy’s and girl’s basketball team, but neither one is real competitive. The school is spiraling... kids leave, faculty leaves, test scores plummet, state accreditation scores drop. Kids with any ability, athletic or academic, transfer to Dekalb or Angola due to lack of opportunities at Hamilton. Frankly, I believe the only reason that the school still exists is due to the amount of wealth living on Hamilton Lake.

That is sad to hear Steubby.  Sadly, there are more in disarray in our neck of the woods so to speak.  And thank you for the "heads up".  Out of curiosity how many schools are there in Steuben County?

So the school I went to and where I coach football at was in 2A for every season except for like the last 6 or 7. 

We've been dominate at both 2A and 3A. 

But 2A is WAY less crowded at the top than 3A is.. 3A(Chatard, Brebeuf, Tri West, Memorial, Andrean, WL, GC). 

... we are at 534 students right now. The top of 2A has 545. I pray 1.5 years from now (next time they reclassify) we are in 2A.

High Schools 3 or 4.

Hamilton 

Fremont 

Angola

Prairie Heights- I think. The school is right on the county line

I live closer to Orland than to Angola, even though my address is Angola. All my kids are grown and gone but I get the PH newsletter in the mail so I assume they are in Steuben County

I think they cross county lines, but I ain't sure.

Wow, your enrollment is down.  The IHSAA site shows you at 562 when they counted heads last year.

Yes and no.. the last couple of years, yes it's down. If you compare to before that it's actually right on course. 

I graduated with 120.
