For the past several years, Northern York athletic director Gerry Schwille has sat down with members of the Northern York School Board about a potential move from the Mid-Penn Conference into the York-Adams League.

None of those talks, however, have ever progressed nearly as far as they have now. Monday night, Schwille and district superintendent Eric Eshbach held a general information meeting at the middle school to lay out some of the reasons for the potential switch. The meeting also gave community members the opportunity to voice questions, comments or concerns. The potential change would be for the two-year cycle beginning for the 2018-19 school year.
