How a Move to the LEL Would Affect Your Student’s Sport:

League level of competition would be impacted but we will work on alternative league scheduling and schedule independent games accordingly to minimize the difference in level of competition.

Basketball (Boys & Girls)
Level of competition would be above average. Good fit for our programs.

Cross Country (Boys & Girls)
Would only have league meet at end of season. Minimal overall change.

League competition would be great fit for size of our program.

Golf (Boys & Girls)
League competition would be average but travel would benefit greatly and reduce amount of time out of classroom. Minimal overall change. Invitational and Dual Matches can be scheduled to tailor competitive fit for our program.

Lacrosse (Boys & Girls)
Will need to schedule independently which coaches are confident can be accomplished. Prior to GCC affiliation, lacrosse programs had always played 100% independent schedules. Minimal overall change.

Soccer (Boys & Girls)
Will schedule independently to achieve competitive schedule. Coaches are 100% on board that this can be done. Would play 2-3 LEL schools. Remainder of schedule tailored to competitive level of our teams.

Would greatly benefit from conference change. Very good fit for our program.

Swimming (Boys & Girls)
Will need to schedule independently to tailor competitive level of schedule. Coach very confident this can be done. 

Tennis (Boys & Girls)
Will schedule independently via our affiliation with NEOTA HS Tennis League to achieve competitive schedule.
Track (Boys & Girls)
League competition would be a good fit for our program. Additional Dual Meets will be scheduled to ensure for competitive opportunities for distance runners and others.

League competition would be a very good fit for our program.
