The summer sports seasons are winding down and attention is starting to turn towards the fall sports season.
For one area school, that will mean another shift to a new conference. According to Mike Williams, Superintendent of Moroa-Forsyth school, the high school will transition to the Sangamo Conference in the Springfield area this fall.
Williams says it's disappointing Maroa-Forsyth is ending their affiliation with the Okaw Valley conference, who will join with a new conference in 2017-18. He says the travel in the new conference is a wash even though there's twice as many teams than the Okaw.
Members of the current Central Illinois Conference once made up a majority of the Okaw Valley Conference, and Williams predicts there being opportunities for a Maroa-Forsyth return to the CIC.
Williams says he's very familiar with the administrators of the Sangamo and looks forward to working with them in the coming years.
