Heritage looks at football co-op options

HOMER — Heritage may be looking for a new co-op for football.

The Shiloh school board is looking at the possibility of joining with Tri-County — composed of the Oakland and Kansas school districts — for football. Shiloh Superintendent John Wheatley said the board this week voted to explore the possibility of a co-op with Tri-County, which would be formed for next school year.

Heritage Superintendent Allen Hall said the East Central Panthers co-op would end if the Shiloh district decides to join with Tri-County.

Hall said Heritage had contacted Villa Grove to see if the district would like to co-op with Heritage.

"Villa Grove is the school Heritage is looking at, but it is still in the early stages," he said.

Hall said Heritage would be open to co-op multiple sports with Villa Grove, but nothing had been decided.

Villa Grove Superintendent Steve Poznic said the district has been contacted about a co-op and the Villa Grove board will discuss the issue Jan. 28.
