totally agree with you. that’s what i was getting at with Covington- they would be the next best cultural fit in the area not named FL. i know it won’t happen and i’m not saying it should. the TRC will be good for now.Covington just agreed to join the newly formed Three Rivers Conference. They aren’t going to join the MAC.
It’s more of a culture-fit for the MAC to accept any school. Don’t blame them a bit. That was a huge factor in the formation of the TRC.
West Milton (Milton-Union), Casstown (Miami East), Bethel, Troy Christian are all Miami County schools. Northridge has a close relationship with Milton and Bethel along with East. Lehman will fit well due to geography and being an old SRC member. Riverside is the odd man in this one.
I think the MAC is perfect the way it is. Best Small school league in the state.
