Farmington makes Missota exit official

The Farmington School Board officially accepted an invitation for Farmington High School to join the South Suburban Conference beginning with the 2014-15 school year. The move was expected, and Shakopee is expected to follow suit later this spring. Two other conference schools, Chaska and Chanhassen, are actively pursuing the formation of a new conference while a fifth, Red Wing, decided last week to apply to the Big Nine Conference. The three remaining schools, New Prague, Northfield and Holy Angels, are evaluating their alternatives for conference affiliation.
