News

New conference announced: Nine schools from six adjoining counties in Northern Indiana have announced their intentions to form the Hoosier North Athletic Conference beginning with the 2015-16 school year.

The HNAC will include Caston, Culver, Knox, LaVille, North Judson, Pioneer, Triton, West Central and Winamac. The decision to start conference play in 2015-16 will give member schools adequate time to align the schedules for each sport.

Several factors were involved in the decision, including travel distance, competitive balance, existing rivalries and overall athletic and academic philosophy.

While the HNAC includes nine schools, the conference would consider expanding to 10 teams should the right opportunity present itself.
