McDowell WPIAL membership discussion tabled

The McDowell football team was granted its released by District 10 earlier this year. The Trojans will compete in D-10 in 2013 and currently does not have a district for 2014 and beyond. McDowell has applied to rejoin the WPIAL but their membership is still up in the air. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the WPIAL Board of Control tabled a discussion Tuesday to readmit McDowell until next fall. The Trojans were official members of the WPIAL in 2010 and 2011 until a new District 10 playoff policy forced McDowell back to D-10 this past year.

“I’m not sure that the board is opposed to them coming back in,” WPIAL executive director Tim O’Malley told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “but wants to wait to see the landscape, as it relates to number of teams in Quad A and whether their inclusion is advantageous or detrimental, before making a decision. If they had stayed in, we wouldn’t have this discussion.”
