Whatever Ike wants...

I could be wrong, but I believe both District 10 and District 9 would have to approve any switch. Has anybody from Ike tested those waters?

My guess is D-10 would vote down the request. Districts do not like to lose teams because it could end up costing them playoff berths. D-10 let several schools jump to D-9 several years ago (Cranberry, E.Forest, W.Forest among them). The D-10 big-wigs said they regretted that vote and would not do it again.

Does D-9 want Ike? Travel costs are high. Schools are looking to schedule close to home. A trip to Ike would immediately become the longest trip for almost every D-9 school except Sheffield. They won't be thrilled.
