A New Home, Finally

December 17, 2013

New ConferenceThe long pursued opportunity for a conference merger by the Peoria based Mid-State 6 Conference finally became a reality with the announcement of its its joinder to the Big 12 Conference. The Big 12 currently consists of Bloomington HS, Normal Community, Normal West, Champaign Central, Centennial, Urbana and Danville. The Mid-State 6, which in recent years has been reduced to 4 teams, currently includes Peoria High School, Manual, Notre Dame and Richwoods.

The merger is expected to provide a significant measure of stability for both conferences which have been plagued with recent school movements to other conferences. The Mid-State 6 had previously planned on merging with the Western Big 6. That proposed merger has previously resulted in the finalization of football contracts which involve competition between the two Conferences' members for last season and the 2014-15 season as well. However the negotiations for full merger fell apart following the earlier agreement for a football joinder. This resulted in the scrapping of that merger proposal thus opening the door for the newly announced merger in its stead.

This new merger, which was particularly necessary for the MS-6 to ensure various football play-off options as well as scheduling issues, has apparently been met with excitement from the Big 12 schools. An article by the Bloomington Pantagraph announcing the merger amplified such reporting:

“It’s very exciting news for us and our kids,” Bloomington athletic director John Szabo said. “It will make it a lot easier to schedule with more schools in the conference. The travel will be a lot more local for most of us. Danville will have travel, but with where they are located they have a lot of travel anyway. “I also think the quality of the conference will be more competitive in a lot of sports. It will better prepare our kids in that regard for state series competition.” Szabo cited exposure as another plus, saying, “It will create some additional media coverage through the Peoria TV stations as well. That will be great for our kids.” Champaign Central’s John Woods, president of the Big 12 athletic directors, called the merger “a blessing for everybody when you look at all of the sports.” “Football certainly drives a lot of the scheduling stuff, but being competitive in every sport is the goal,” Woods said. “That’s what the Peoria schools bring to the Big 12 and that’s what attracted the Big 12 to the Peoria schools. They are competitive in all of their sports. “They have a rich tradition and great people leading their programs. I think it’s a win-win for everybody.”

 Current plans call for full conference tournaments or meets beginning next year in: Tennis, Cross Country, Swimming, Golf, Track and Wrestling   In all of the other sports a one game conference schedule is contemplated as the determiner for the Conference Championship, with baseball and softball still being consided. The in sports that are conducting a conference tournament or meet will not be required to compete in a regular season competition with all of the Conference schools, it will be recommended. Speech, Scholastic Bowl, Music, Cheer and Dance are all possibilities for Conference competition.  There is a tentative meeting of Athletic Directors set on January 9, 2014 for further discussions of the particulars. The process of adjusting schedules is reportedly already underway.
