Prior to Saturday’s MIAA B Conference football championship game between Archbishop Spalding and Archbishop Curley, at Mount St. Joseph, MIAA executive director Rick Diggs announced realignments in all three football conference of the MIAA, and discussed the possibility of a championship game in the A Conference in 2011.
Among the changes is the movement of Spalding, which defeated Curley 21-13 for the B Conference title, to the A Conference. This will give the A Conference seven teams for the first time since Curley left the league following the 2005 season and has opened discussions about the possibility of an A Conference title game.
“It’s going to be all new looks next year,” said Diggs in discussing the changes to the MIAA football lineups. “Our biggest effort is going to be in trying to get a playoff or championship in each of the three divisions – A, B and C.
“It’s going to be easy in the B and C. We already have it in the B and we’re going to initiate in the C. We have to a little bit of work to make this A Conference thing work.”
Two teams will also be moving from the B Conference to the C Conference, while two additional B Conference programs will move to the C. The C Conference will also grow by one team, to five, as Mount Carmel, which played an independent schedule in 2010, will join the league next fall.
