Goodbye Suburban North Conference

Say Hello to the new St Louis Suburban Conference alignments.

From the original press release in 2012:
The St. Louis Suburban Public High School Athletic and Activities Association has announced the new conference alignment of its member schools effective the start of the 2014-2015 school year. The new alignment of schools reflects the changing enrollments and sports offerings of the member schools, as well as considerations made for geographical proximity.

The new alignment splits the 32 high schools into three conferences, each with two divisions. Teams will compete for either a Division or Conference championship depending on the conference and sport. Member schools will also compete across Divisions and Conferences to promote interleague play.

I’ve provided the breakdown below along with updated enrollment numbers as well as the change in enrollment since 2012. MSHSAA has indicated that Soccer Districts will be announced by August 15 so I’ll update this to reflect the new 4 Class line up.
