So now, the question becomes... what chain of events, if any, does this set off? I can't imagine the SWC will want to stay at 9, as it forces some teams to find a non-league game in later weeks (when they were at 7 from 2013-14, the West Shore was as well, and they had a scheduling agreement). Does the SWC invite Elyria or Lorain to come in as a new 10th, vote out Berea-Midpark to get to 8, or do something a little more unforeseeable? Between this and the PTC news from earlier, the conference landscape situation in NEO is getting interesting...

If I were Holy Name and Elyria Catholic, I would be prepared to get kicked out of the league. Eight is the ideal number for schools in a conference. This allows for 7 league games and three non conference games. In all other sports this allows a ho e and home set with fourteen total games. This is absolutely ideal for scheduling. Also EC and HN are both private schools that pull kids out of these areas, HN more than EC. Point is this conference is public school dominated and no longer needs them. If I were a betting man, Id say within two years both will be gone. Only issue may be Parma schools potential consolidation.

If the Parma schools consolidate then you have eight teams.

Parma has been talking consolidation for many years. It won't happen as long as the parents in Parma Hts. and Seven Hills continue to look down on residents of Parma.
