COMMENTS


According to the 7/5/06 Beacon Journal, the Northeast Ohio Conference is all set to begin play in 2007. The new conference will sport 18 teams, which will be divided into three divisions of six (Valley, River, and Lake). The divisions have the chance to be different for each sport, depending on a school's relative strength while keeping an eye on geography. For football in 2007, the divisions will look like this:

Valley Division: Brunswick, Elyria, Lakewood, Medina, Solon, Strongsville
River Division: Cuyahoga Falls, Garfield Heights, Hudson, Mayfield, Nordonia, Stow
Lake Division: Brush, Normandy, North Royalton, Parma, Twinsburg, Valley Forge

Thanks to Patrick M. for this information.
At one time, Strongsville wore an Indianapolis Colts-style horseshoe. They have also worn a green SMU-style mustang on a white helmet with a green facemask and green and yellow stripes.
