McCook to Join southwest Conference


The Southwest Conference has voted to approve McCook’s application to become the 8th member of the conference in a vote by member schools on Thursday. Conference bylaws require a two-thirds majority vote and McCook’s application reached that threshold. Primary areas of consideration by school officials included geographic location in comparison to the conference footprint, current enrollment and enrollment trends, and an interest in continuing a competitive balance in all conference activities. Consideration of the benefits of having an even number of schools was also discussed. In its application letter, McCook officials have indicated that they plan on a dual membership upon their entrance into the SWC, while maintaining the school’s existing membership in the Greater Nebraska Activities Conference (GNAC). On a related note, Kearney Catholic’s application for membership in the SWC did not reach the required two-thirds approval needed for membership.



New VHS Wresting Room Goes for Bid



At their recent meeting, the Valentine Community Schools, Board of Education voted to request bids on a new 50 by 108 foot building that will be used for a wrestling room and multi purpose facility. This project has been discussed for the past few years. The estimated costs of stand along building range from $450,000 to $628,000. It is hoped that construction could be done in time for the 201602017 wrestling season. Bids are due on April 5th.

It is hoped that the community would be willing to help with some fund raising by making a tax deductible contribution to the Valentine High School Foundation.
