New proposed D-10 regions see several key changes
District 10 released its proposed regions for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years, with several changes on tap for Warren County Schools.
The first change comes in the fall for Warren football, which will now share Region 5 with Fort LeBoeuf, General McLane, Oil City, Meadville, Franklin and DuBois, with Fort LeBoeuf and General McLane new to the schedule. The Dragons went 2-8 in 2016 as first-year coach Mark Morelli and his staff took over looking to rebuild the program.
Eisenhower will now be in Region 2 with Union City, Cochranton, Cambridge Springs, Iroquois, Saegertown, Maplewood, Northwestern and Seneca.
In boys soccer, the only major change involves Slippery Rock joining Region 5, joining the Dragons, Meadville, Franklin, Oil City and Bradford.
There is a big change in girls soccer, where Warren will take a big step up in competition, moving to Region 6. They will join a group that includes Erie High, Meadville, McDowell, Bradford, Oil City, Franklin and Hickory.
This is a change from past years, as Warren is coming off three straight Region 5 titles competing against Corry, Titusville, Bradford and Oil City.
There are also big changes for Warren volleyball, which will enter next season as a serious District 10 title contender. The Lady Dragons will now join Region 6 with McDowell, General McLane, Villa, Erie High and Harbor Creek to form perhaps the district’s toughest region.
There are no major changes to boys basketball, only with Titusville and Oil City joining the current group of Warren, Corry, Fort LeBoeuf, General McLane and Harbor Creek, with Conneaut moving to Region 5.
The only change for the Warren girls is that Meadville and General McLane will be joining them in a new Region 7, with Fort LeBoeuf moving to Region 4.
In wrestling, Warren will move to the newly formed Region 7 with Cathedral Prep, Erie High, McDowell and Meadville.
Moving to the spring sports, Youngsville be moving from Region 3 to Region 1 in baseball, joining Living Word Christian, Kennedy Catholic, Jamestown and West Middlesex.

Softball will also see some changes, with Eisenhower moving to Region 2 with Union City, Iroquois, Seneca and Northwestern, while Youngsville will be in Region 3 with Cambridge Springs, Rocky Grove, Cochranton, Saegertown and Maplewood.
