Mac AD: TRC is best bet

Peru is TRC bound; could other MIC schools follow?

(Continued)

Off said the MIC has since offered membership to Lapel and Tipton, but neither school has given an indication of what their plans are. Lapel is currently operating as an independent, while Tipton is a member of the seven-school Hoosier Conference.

The TRC extended invitations to Peru and Maconaquah, effective 2015-16, on Jan. 15. Maconaquah’s next regular board meeting is March 19, and it is anticipated that a vote on the matter will occur at that time. The TRC has given Peru and Maconaquah until April 1 to accept or decline its invitation. Peru’s school board voted Monday to accept the TRC’s invitation, but the league has said it will only take both or neither as a packaged deal.

“When I thought Eastern was going to stay, I was overwhelmingly for just slipping Tipton in there and going on because I really like the MIC ADs,” Off said. “But, as we saw that continue to crumble and starting seeing other schools hedge their bets and play both sides — I don’t blame them for that because it’s a matter of survival — I started to see the likelihood of an intact MIC starting to slip away. That’s what concerned me.”

The current TRC includes Manchester, Northfield, North Miami, Rochester, Southwood, Tippecanoe Valley, Wabash and Whitko.

It was also divulged during Tuesday’s work session that Hamilton Heights intends to seek entrance into the Sagamore Conference. If Maconaquah votes to leave with Peru for the TRC, that potentially would leave the MIC with three schools left in Cass, Northwestern and Western.

Maconaquah officials indicated that two of those three are interested in the prospects of joining the TRC along with Peru and Maconaquah, and splitting the would-be 12-school league into two six-school divisions. Those two other schools were not identified, but through the process of discussion, it was revealed that one of them does not offer soccer as a sport. Cass is the only MIC school that doesn’t offer soccer.
