The 24 schools from the Mississippi Valley Conference and the Mississippi Athletic Conference met with officials from the Iowa High School Athletic Association for more than three hours Wednesday and reached an agreement regarding Class 4A district football.
They agreed to meet again later this month.
"Honestly, I was hoping to come out of today with an answer," Kennedy athletic director Aaron Stecker remarked. "I don't hesitate to say I'm frustrated that we don't have an answer yet. I was wanting an answer today and didn't get it."
The debate is whether to retain conference affiliation for Class 4A football in the eastern part of Iowa or switch to districts, like the Class 4A schools in the western part of the state did two years ago when the issue was first batted around.
