D-300 board votes to join IHSA for lacrosse

McHenry only FVC school not yet committed to move

The Community School District 300 Board recently voted to move to IHSA for lacrosse in the 2018-19 school year, in line with what the other Fox Valley Conference schools are doing.

D-300 will have boys teams at Dundee-Crown, Hampshire and Jacobs and also will field a girls co-op team with the three high schools.

The IHSA made lacrosse an official sport for the 2017-18 school year, but locally only Huntley and Marian Central went to IHSA. Community High School District 155 voted for its schools (Cary-Grove, Crystal Lake Central, Crystal Lake South and Prairie Ridge) to become IHSA for lacrosse in 2018-19.

The remaining FVC schools had decided to take the path of the D-155 schools so the conference could remain intact. The D-300 schools are in.

The McHenry High School District 156 Board has not yet voted on it, but McHenry athletic director Barry Burmeister said the logistics are being worked out.
