Port Townsend to remain in Olympic League through 2013-14February 26th, 2013 by nathan joyce
Port Townsend will remain in the Olympic League through the
2013-14 academic year.
Port Townsend, the only Class 1A team in the 2A/1A Olympic League, had hoped to leave for the 1A Nisqually League.
Typically, leagues are set for two years. When new enrollment figures are announced every two years, schools can join other leagues.
Port Townsend appealed to the West Central District and tried to join the league first for basketball season, then for the spring season and finally for next academic year.
A major reason for the change was to simplify Port Townsend’s path to the postseason. Port Townsend had to finish a certain place in the league standings to qualify. In past years, it was fifth place. Now, the Redskins have to finish at least seventh place to earn a Class 1A Tri-District play-in game against a Nisqually League school.
