South Whidbey to break away from Cascade Conference, form new 1A league | South Whidbey Record

The Cascade Conference is officially splitting apart.

South Whidbey High School is leaving the combined class 1A/2A conference with four other 1A schools — King’s, Cedar Park Christian-Bothell, Sultan and Granite Falls — to form a new league called the North Sound Conference.

It’s slated to begin in the fall of 2018.

“I’m excited about going to a 1A conference,” said South Whidbey Athletic Director Paul Lagerstedt. “I think it’s always healthier when we’re playing schools that are more like us, and we’re talking about 1A-sized schools.”

The North Sound Conference will not include 2A schools Cedarcrest and Archbishop Murphy. Both will need to apply to other conferences.

Granite Falls, currently a 2A school, is petitioning with the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) to drop down a classification.
