A big 3A/4A high school league east of the Cascades breaks apart

We have more news on high school realignment and reclassification, as if there wasn’t enough. It appears that the end game is here for the long-running saga concerning the future of the big 3A/4A league in Central Washington, the CBBN.

According to this story in the Tri-City Herald, the league is splitting up, with the Tri-Cities schools going their own way and the remainder of the schools, from the Yakima, Wenatchee and Moses Lake areas, going theirs.

The future of the league has been in flux for the better part of the past several weeks, after Tri-Cities schools attempted to realign the league based on geography only to have that move rebuffed by district administrators. The main concern at play throughout all of this has been travel costs, and reducing those in light of anticipated state budget cuts to K-12 education.

Read and discuss.

Incidentally, Mount Si’s softball team will be doing their Wenatchee overnight swing again to open the season in March, so Wildcat softball fans will once again get to see some of the top teams from Central Washington in Wenatchee, Eastmont and Moses Lake. The trip has been a favorite of Mount Si for the past few years largely because very little money is spent on it – the team carpools over there and the players spend the night at the home of a former Mount Si assistant coach who now lives over in that area.
