No specifics have been determined yet, but the Ohio High School Athletic Association's Suburban League hosted a meeting in June to discuss possible expansion.
Aurora, Kenston, Twins-burg, Kent Roosevelt, Ravenna, Stow-Munroe Falls, Hudson, Cuyahoga Falls, Barberton, North Royalton and Medina attended that meeting.
Then later this summer after much deliberation, a key member of the Suburban League -- Green -- decided to pull out.
That could be the first domino in a major shift for high school sports in Portage and Summit counties, as Suburban League commissioner Keith Walker indicated earlier this summer the league might be open to expansion if Green left.
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 of the planned move during an athletic directors meeting.
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 was scheduled to host a meeting with all of its athletic directors and principals Aug. 26 to determine an "action plan."
Aurora and Kenston are attempting to find a new league to join after 10 Chagrin Valley Conference schools announced late this spring they will exit the CVC.
Those schools are Beachwood, Chagrin Falls, Hawken, Independence, Kirtland, Orange, Painesville Harvey, Perry, West Geauga and Wickliffe.
