LCO Ojibwe School Athletics Joins Indianhead Conference
LCO Ojibwe School
At the May Board of Control meeting, the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association approved a fast-tracked, non-football conference realignment request by Lac Courte Oreilles to move from an independent status to the Indianhead Conference, effective in all sports except football in the fall of 2021-22. Entrance into a conference will expand opportunities for school, team and individual recognition for student athletes as well as guarantee a robust event schedule for the 7 high school and middle school sports at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School. Lac Courte Oreilles joins Bayfield, Washburn, Drummond, South Shore, Solon Springs, Butternut, Mellen, Hurley, and Mercer as Indianhead Conference member schools. All current sport seasons remain the same as pre-Covid, with the exception of middle school girls volleyball (January/February) and basketball (August-October).
The WIAA, as defined by its Constitution, is a voluntary, unincorporated, and nonprofit organization. The membership oversees interscholastic athletic programs for 515 senior high schools and 48 junior high/middle level schools in its membership.
