Woodstock schools may look to leave FVC

Woodstock and Woodstock North may be looking to join another conference for athletics.

Under “New Business” on the District 200 school board’s agenda for Tueday’s meeting is an item “Fox Valley Conference Discussion.”

Neither athletic director, Glen Wilson of Woodstock nor Nic Kearfott of Woodstock North, returned phone calls on the subject on Friday.

Woodstock boys basketball coach Alex Baker said the coaches were instructed to keep any discussion before the meeting "in-house."

Woodstock North opened in the 2009-10 school year and the enrollment is now almost split between the schools with North at 918 students and Woodstock at 957. Johnsburg (766) is leaving for the Big Northern Conference after this school year, which will leave Hampshire (1,185) as the next-smallest FVC school besides the Woodstocks.

Woodstock and Woodstock North would fit well geographically with the BNC. If they would move that direction, it would bring the BNC membership to 18, divided into two nine-team divisions for most sports.
