North Putnam to leave the WIC for new athletic conference

Following a vote by the North Putnam Community Schools school board Thursday night, the Cougars will be leaving the Western Indiana Conference as an athletic member. 


North Putnam has accepted an invite to join a new athletic conference that will include the likes of: Crawfordsville, Southmont, North Montgomery, Frankfort and Western Boone.


Last month, North Putnam athletic director Bart Jochim told The Putnam County Post there was nothing he could officially share. 


"North Putnam is and will always explore options to do what is best for our students, school and community," Jochim told The Putnam County Post. 


The Cougars were already slated to play Southmont and North Montgomery this football season and last played Western Boone in 2020 in the sectional round of the IHSAA football playoffs. 


This is a developing story and will be updated as necessary.
