Cary high schools to change conferences

March 16, 2012 5:23:41 PM PDT
Two Wake County schools will have to join an athletic conference that currently consists of primarily Durham Public Schools.

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association rejected Green Hope and Panther Creek's appeal to remain in the Tri-Nine conference. Instead, the two schools will join the Piedmont Athletic Conference in the fall of 2013.

Opponents of the move cited a negative impact to funding of athletic programs once the schools left their current conference.

Parents and athletes were also concerned that some programs will not survive the conference change.
