Holdrege- After spending almost 20 years in the Central 10 Conference, the Holdrege Board of Education has voted to end that membership effective June 30th of next year and apply for membership in their historic “home” of the Southwest Conference effective July 1, 2022. The board approved the decision on Monday night. Superintendent Todd Hilyard spoke Tuesday with KRVN’s Jayson Jorgensen about the decision. Click here for interview.
Holdrege has not officially been accepted to the Southwest Conference at this point, but it is expected that will happen in the near future. Holdrege was a founding member of the Southwest conference back in 1928 and stayed in that league until 2004. The Southwest conference currently consists of 8 schools across the state. Ainsworth, Broken Bow, Valentine, Cozad, Gothenburg, Ogallala, McCook and Minden.
