From the Principal:

You may have read or heard matters about the membership of the War Eagle Conference (WEC) changing. I can confirm that there is definitely something going on, and as the principal I would like to report what has happened and what is happening.

George-Little Rock (G-LR) applied for membership in the WEC this fall. On October 6 the heads of the WEC schools met. This group unanimously accepted G-LR as a member school. However, as athletic events are planned well in advance, the implementation would have been 2024-2025 unless a different schedule could be worked out sooner.

It turns out that a different schedule did indeed work. WEC school Unity Christian was invited to join the Siouxland Conference. Unity made efforts to do this and they were unanimously accepted. As G-LR left the Siouxland, the G-LR schedules and the Unity schedules will simply take each other’s place in their new respective conferences starting next year, 2023-2024.

While everything for this change fell in place nicely, it won’t be official until December 9. At that time the WEC schools will formally accept Unity’s request to leave the WEC. The schools will also meet and greet the head of G-LR at that time.

Thanks for your interest in and support of Trinity Christian High School extra-curriculars!
