North Ridgeville is reportedly set to join the Southwestern Conference. The Rangers will replace Brecksville-Broadview Heights, which will join the Suburban League.
Ridgeville has been a member of the West Shore Conference since the league’s inception in 2005.
“It’s exciting for us and a relief at the same time,” North Ridgeville athletic director Matt Yunker said. “It brings stability first and foremost. We know the schools in the Southwestern Conference — the current schools and the three that are joining in addition to us in 2015 — we believe there is a sense of stability.”
