With Chokio-Alberta/Herman- Norcross ending their athletic program the Pheasant Conference schools Ath- letic Directors met Monday, Nov.1 to decide on possible conference expan- sion. Beginning next season Parkers Prairie, Ortonville, and ECHO Charter will all be in the Pheasant Conference for football. Parkers Prairie will join the North along with Betha-Hewitt, Verndale, Eagle Valley, Hillcrest Lutheran Acad- emy, Ashby, and Underwood. Or- tonville and ECHO will join the South along with CGB, Wheaton, Brandon- Evansville, Hancock, and Lincoln HI. Ortonville Superintendent Jeff Tay- lor stated that with enrollment projec- tions to go down, this was a good opportunity to apply. "Our enrollment figures show that by the 2014-2015 school year, we would be eligible to play 9-Man foot- ball," said Taylor. "We just thought that applying now made a lot of sense instead of waiting until the 2014-2015 year." The Trojans will begin playing a 9- man schedule next season, but with en- rollment figures still above the 9-man limit, they will move into 11-man for the playoffs. Along with 9-12 school enrollment, free/reduced lunch counts by grade level are also calculated in. By using 30 percent of the students qualifying for free and reduced lunches and re- ducing the enrollment by 40 percent of that amount you come out with the number used to determine classifica- tion. Enrollment projections for Or- tonville 9-12 students, including the free/reduced lunch counts, are 188 in 2010-2011; 182 for 2011-2012; 183 for 2012-2013; 176 for 2013-2014; and 157 for 2014-2015. According to the Minnesota State High school League, 9-Man cutoff is currently 165.
