The South Central Athletic Conference doesn’t want to bring Cascade, Chelan and Cashmere into its fold. But the three schools, currently members of a soon-to-be-dissolved Caribou Trail League, aren’t giving up hope of joining the conference — they think they’d be a great fit in the SCAC. They now have to hope that the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association agrees with them.
The three schools sent a letter of appeal to WIAA director Mike Colbrese on Friday, according to Cascade athletic director Elia Ala’ilima-Daley. With the appeal, the three CTL schools are hoping that the WIAA will initiate a mediation process and find a way to get the three schools into the SCAC in a manner that will be acceptable for all parties involved.
