#SCC25 - Turn Back the Clock - Jan. 22, 1993 - Mega Conference: Are You In? Are you Out?

#SCC25 Turn Back the Clock:  Jan. 22, 1993 – Mega Conference: Are you In? Or Are you Out?

In October 1992, discussions regarding a “Mega” high school league became serious, and nearly three months later, on Jan. 19, 1993, a meeting was held at ACES, facilitated by its Executive Director Peter Young with interested principals and athletic directors from area high schools.  The concept of a “Mega League” was tangible, and the reality was timing if it were to begin in the 1994-95 academic year.   This mega conference ultimately became the Southern Connecticut Conference.

But first, schools needed to make their commitment – were they in, or were they out?

On January 22, 1993, Young mailed (no email, yet folks) a letter to each school asking for their commitment to the “Mega League.”     The deadline to respond was February 27, 1993.

The rest is history.

Check out the attached letter sent to the interested schools (courtesy of the SCC Historical archives, provided by former Guilford athletic director Chip Dorwin) along with the various sports’ scheduling alignments.  Pay particular attention to some of the names of schools who showed interest in the “mega league.”
