As you know, the EIAC has expanded to 8 teams. For most sports, all 8 schools will compete for one title. Right now football is split into a 4A division and a 3A division. According to unconfirmed sources, this was brought about because East Central did not want to compete in several sports against Lawrenceburg with football heading the list. Likewise, it has been said that Lawrenceburg wanted to drop out of the EIAC if they still had to play East Central in every sport. One thing is certain–the 4A and 3A split for football was not unanimous among all coaches. I have not been able to confirm how this was finally decided upon. What it has left the conference with is a football division of East Central, Connersville, South Dearborn, and Franklin County. The 3A portion is made up of Batesville, Greensburg, Rushville, and Lawrenceburg. At this time, basketball will be just one division, but there will not be a home and away round robin. I do believe, however, that each school will face each other this year. Those sports who decide the conference in head-to-head contests include basketball, football, volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer and tennis. Sports like track, swimming, cross country, and wrestling will have a one-day meet to determine the champion. As the year evolves, we will have to see if they have made any other exceptions to who plays who.
