Riceville seeks new conference home


It isn’t a certainty yet, but Riceville, a Corn Bowl Conference mainstay since the 1960s, is looking to make the leap to the smaller-school Iowa Star Conference.

The Wildcats, with a 9-11 grade enrollment official number of 71, is by far the smallest school in the Corn Bowl.

If a Monday, Oct. 21 school board meeting approves Riceville to leave the Corn Bowl and later is admitted to the Iowa Star, it would be in the middle of the conference as far as enrollment goes. The average 9-11 enrollment for Iowa Star schools is 84.
