Kent City Board and Admin considering leaving the OK Silver

We need to tell Kent City Board of Education and Administration on Monday May 20, 2013 at 7:00pm that we do NOT want to leave the OK Silver Conference Division and go to Central State Activities Association.
Kent City Middle & High School will lose soccer, golf, and bowling. This accounts for approximately 40 athletes.
The travel distances for people who work in Grand Rapids will average from 46-71 miles one way.

I don't think it's a bad move. The school has to be concerned with the distance from the SCHOOL to the other schools, not how far away the new schools would be from people who work in GR. They need to save money, and it makes a lot more sense to travel shorter distances to these new schools while also playing schools that are our size. They will also get to revive old rivalries that they had for 50+ years. As for losing those sports you mentioned, they wouldn't necessarily have to lose them. But if they did, it wouldn't be the end of the world; most school our size don't offer any of them, let alone ALL of them, and with our enrollment dropping like it is, maybe it's time to condense our sports teams.
