Supper Club: Bend High Schools Move to 6A League

Big changes are in store for Bend high schools after a decision from the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) changed the schools’ league and competition level beginning next year.

For this week’s Supper Club, Central Oregon Daily’s Eric Lindstrom sat down with three local reporters who cover high school sports to look at the impact of this week’s OSAA decision. Thanks to Grant, Joshua and Mike for joining us.

A special thanks to our Supper Club sponsor, Selco Community Credit Union, for giving us the time and resources to talk about the issues that impact our region every Tuesday night on Central Oregon Daily.

Reclassification of High School Athletic Conferences

A committee of athletic directors and high school administrators is looking at major changes in the state’s conferences. Changes that could separate Bend’s high schools from Redmond high schools for the first time in more than a decade. They’ve scheduled a public hearing for Monday in Wilsonville to get input from other athletic directors, administrators and parents on the latest proposals.

Central Oregon Daily’s Curtis Vogel looks at how the “class shuffle” could change with whom and where our local athletes compete.
