Renton School District is moving to the Kingco Athletic league, following a departure from South Puget Sound League (SPSL).
KingCo accepted Renton schools to be members of its conference last week. The conference is also expanding to a 4A/3A/2A league.
Renton High School and Lindbergh High School joined other North-most 2A SPSL schools (Tyee, Highline, Evergreen and Foster high schools) move to KingCo’s new, separate 2A division. Renton School District’s Randy Matheson stated in an email this allows Renton and Lindbergh to continue competing against Highline schools and Foster. This left 2A SPSL a nine-school league.
Hazen High School would join the KingCo 3A division.
Now Renton schools must submit requests to WIAA Districts for the league change but barring any unexpected roadblocks should be in the KingCo Conference for the 2020-2024 classification cycle, Matheson stated.
