Van Wert independent sports

According to Northwest Conference President Brad Mendenall, Leipsic has accepted an invitation to join the NWC, pending approval by the school board.

The decision was made Thursday night. It’s expected the Vikings will join in time for the 2022-2023 school year, when Paulding leaves the NWC for the Green Meadows Conference.

Leipsic has been a member of the Blanchard Valley Conference in football since 1965 and all sports since 1971, but voted to leave the conference during Monday night’s school board meeting. The Vikings are also members of the Putnam County League.

Leipsic will join Ada, Allen East, Bluffton, Columbus Grove, Crestview, Delphos Jefferson, Lincolnview and Spencerville.

Check back Friday for more details.
