Anyone know what the Packerland is going to do for soccer in 2015-16? American-rules football gets the publicity but I believe the boys will be down to 5 teams - Algoma, SB, Gibraltar, NEW, and Kewaunee - while the girls will be down to 3 - SB, Sevastopol, and Kewaunee. Hard to make a conference schedule with 3 teams...play everyone 6 times?!?!?

There is no reason to believe that even the WIAA knows what will become of all the sports in the newly realigned conferences.

My guess is the Packerland will have to somehow combine with or schedule teams from the Central Lakeshore or perhaps the EVC.

The EWC and Packerland will be combining and Peshtigo will also be joining on the boys side (currently an independent).

I wouldn't be surprised if NEW joined the girls side as well as even though they didn't have a girls team last year it appears they're going to have one this year (we'll see if that actually happens once the season starts)

Here's an article from the Door County Advocate. I've pasted the teams below.

Glad it worked out to some extent with schools that are reasonably close but it's pretty obvious that soccer isn't what drives realignment isn't it.

Forget the bolded part. I guess they only had 5 girls show up on the 1st day of practice after 16 originally signed up to play so they're not having a team this year for the girls.


And Blade you're correct that soccer doesn't drive realignment but at least they figured out something so there's more than 4 or 5 teams in the conference.

Disappointing for girls who want to play and thought there was going to be a team and did not play in the fall with the boys. Maybe they can put together a co-op with another school.

It's too bad so many "lesser" sports get hammered with unusual circumstances, crazy travel and odd schedules because FB or Bball drive realignment.
