Why is Superior High School still a part of the Lake Superior Conference? According to the Superior School district website the high school population is 1633. The Lake Superior Conference website lists the participating schools as Ashland (800), Cloquet (728), Denfeld, Marshall (428 in grades 4-12), Hermantown (680), Proctor (600) and of course Superior (1633). In the paranthese I have included the school population I found online, at the school districts websites. The only population I could not find was Duluth Denfeld. My best guess would be they have a smaller population to Superior.
Going back to my initial question, Why is Superior High School still apart of the Lake Superior Conference? Shouldn’t the teams of the conference be similar in size and from the same state? For example, another conference in northern Minnesota is the Polar League. The schools in the Polar league are all similar size and apart of the MSHSL Class A or AA. There are no teams from Wisconsin in their conference and Duluth East or Grand Rapids is not a part of the conference.
I think it is time the Lake Superior Conference does something about the teams and restructures. Superior shouldn’t be in the Lake Superior Conference anymore. Superior it has been a nice run for you and your Lake Superior Conference titles, but no more. The smaller schools such as Marshall and Proctor just have no chance to compete. It’s simple why, their size. Those 2 schools don’t have the number of students like Superior has to pick from for their basketball team.
Superior how about you put some more teams from Wisconsin on your regular season schedule? How about your join one of the many conferences in Wisconsin? How about you add some teams to your schedule that are similar in size? Why is it the majority of teams Superior will play this season are from Minnesota?
Superior it is time you left the Lake Superior Conference, scheduled tougher games, and joined a conference in Wisconsin.
