Jackpine Conference Announces Additional Schools to 2024-2025 School Year


Jack Pine Conference Press Release

 The Jack Pine Conference has a long-standing tradition of promoting excellence in academics, sportsmanship and athletics and we are excited to expand and extend that tradition with the addition of four new member schools: Bullock Creek, Ogemaw Heights, St. Louis and Standish-Sterling high schools.

These four schools will be joining the JPC starting in the 2024-25 school year and will undoubtedly help elevate the Jack Pine Conference to new heights. This addition will not only enhance the conference's overall strength but will also foster an environment of healthy competition, collaboration and camaraderie among our schools and communities.

"We are delighted to welcome Bullock Creek, Ogemaw Heights, St. Louis and Standish-Sterling to the Jack Pine Conference,” said Jack Kramer, JPC Commissioner. “Their dedication to academics, athletics and sportsmanship aligns well with our core values and we are confident that their participation will further enrich the conference and benefit all member schools."

Starting in the 2024-25 school year the JPC will become a two divisions one champion conference. With this move the JPC hopes to create a more competitive schedule for all member schools throughout their seasons while still having one conference champion, in each sport, to keep the long-standing connections within the conference strong. Specific names for the two divisions are yet to be determined as we hope to gather input from our new member schools.
