New Castle, NCC opt for quick divorce

New Castle’s exit from the North Central Conference will come sooner than originally planned.

IHSAA commissioner Bobby Cox met with NCC schools on Friday amid recent reports that the league was experiencing in-fighting over New Castle’s planned departure following the 2013-14 school year for the Hoosier Heritage Conference. New Castle’s decision to leave was based on the NCC’s expansion plans, but apparently the decision and New Castle’s exit strategy not sit well with some other NCC schools.

Following Friday’s meeting, the NCC released a statement that said the league’s remaining schools will void all current and future league dates with New Castle, with the exception of 2013 football matchups.

“NCC schools wishing to schedule New Castle may do so on a school-by-school basis,” the statement noted.

“The North Central Conference looks forward to a new era with its current membership and the addition of Lafayette Jeff, Harrison, and McCutcheon [beginning with the 2014-15 school year]. The NCC would also like to wish New Castle the best of luck as they begin a new chapter in the Hoosier Heritage Conference.”

New Castle was a charter member of the NCC in 1926.

Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
