GRC Will Be Divided into East and West Divisions
The Grand River Conference�s two-division scenario will begin in 2016-17 after the field of league schools has grown to 16 with the addition of Trenton, Milan, Unionville, Pattonsburg, North Andrew and St. Joseph Christian. School superintendents met last Wednesday in Gallatin to hammer out an agreement that would place schools in equal eight-team East and West divisions for softball and basketball, along with separate 11-man and 8-man football divisions. Gallatin, Maysville, Milan, Polo, Princeton, Putnam County, South Harrison and Trenton will compete in the East Division for softball and basketball. Albany, Braymer, King City, North Andrew, Pattonsburg, St. Joseph Christian, Stanberry and Worth County will form the West Division for softball and basketball. Conference wrestling and golf tournaments will include all 16 schools, depending on whether a school fields a team in either sport. The conference track championships will be held in a one-day meet featuring all 16 schools. As of now, King City and Braymer join all eight East Division schools in the 11-man football conference but that will change should either or both opt for 8-man football beginning in the fall of 2016. Plans now call for a six-team 8-man football conference.

GRC Membership to 15; Meeting Could Decide Divisions
One day after Milan school officials announced they have accepted an offer to join the Grand River Conference, Putnam County High School officials have announced the intention of moving to the league, bringing the GRC membership for 2016-2017 to 15 schools. With the addition of Milan and Putnam County, both former Tri-Rivers Conference members, to the GRC, a revision of the two-division structure adopted at a Feb. 6 meeting will be necessary. Trenton, Pattonsburg, North Andrew and St. Joseph Christian have also accepted invitations to the join the GRC in recent days. Superintendents from existing members and new members of the GRC met today at 11 a.m. at Gallatin High School to discuss the future makeup of the two-division format. Gallatin Superintendent Dennis Croy is the president of the league. �We are going to attempt to figure out how to align the divisions,� Croy commented after the latest announcement concerning Putnam County joining the league. �We�ll also talk about how we handle different sports and will probably discuss names for each division,� he added. Perhaps the biggest question remaining, which may or may not be addressed at the meeting, is what will Braymer and King City football prospects be going forward. Both currently play 11-man football but both have been rumored as strongly considering a switch to the 8-man ranks. Right now the GRC projects ten 11-man schools and six 8-man schools. Should Braymer and King City switch, the two divisions would stack up even at eight and eight.
