After much deliberation, a key member of Suburban League has decided to move on.
That could be the first domino in a major shift for high schools sport in Summit County, as Suburban League commissioner Keith Walker indicated earlier this summer the league might be open to expansion were Green to leave.
Green announced Aug. 20 that it will leave the Suburban League to join the Stark County-based Federal League beginning with the 2015-16 school year.
Walker said Green informed the other members of the Suburban League of the planned move during an athletic directors meeting Aug. 20.
Green will remain in the Suburban League for the next two years along with Tallmadge, Nordonia, Copley, Cloverleaf, Revere, Wadsworth and Highland.
Walker said the Suburban League will host a meeting with all of its athletic directors and principals Aug. 26 to determine an "action plan" heading forward.
No specifics have been determined yet, but the Suburban League did host a meeting in June to discuss possible expansion.
Stow-Munroe Falls, Hudson, Cuyahoga Falls, Twinsburg, Aurora, Kent Roosvelt, Ravenna, Kenston, Barberton, North Royalton and Medina attended that meeting.
