The Shelby County R-IV School Board took the first of its two annual tours of the elementary schools on Wednesday, Sept. 12. The board toured Shelbina Elementary prior to its regular meeting.
   Conference Affiliation
   South Shelby Athletic Director Rob Wilt was asked to present numbers with how South Shelby stacked up in the Clarence Cannon Conference compared to other schools.
   Wilt gave a breakdown of how South Shelby ranks with the rest of the conference in several different categories.
   He started with enrollment numbers. South Shelby ranks last in this category with 229 students in grades 9-12. Monroe City is the next smallest with 266. The largest school is Centralia with 442 students and Macon is close behind with 426 students.
   He also noted that in football, the sport that is probably affected the most by enrollment numbers, South Shelby ranks last with 29 on its roster this year. Centralia has 80 on its roster and Palmyra is second with 65. Highland is the next one up from South Shelby with 37 kids.
   Another area that was broken down was South Shelby’s records in the last four years against CCC opponents. They are as follows: Football, 15-19; Softball, 17-28; Boys Basketball, 6-36; Girls Basketball, 11-30 and Baseball, 1-35.
   Against non-conference opponents in the last four years the records are as follows: Football, 12-2; Softball, 30-13; Boys Basketball, 27-28; Girls Basketball, 32-23 and Baseball, 3-26.
   There was talk of contacting the Lewis & Clark Conference to see if it was still interested in having South Shelby join. The district was approached by the L&C four years ago and declined to move. Wilt said it is becoming sort of a safety issue in football with freshman and sophomore kids going up against junior and senior kids. And many times the junior and senior kids are rested while the younger kids from South Shelby are forced to stay on the field the entire game because of lack of depth. Everyone agreed that it was important to stay affiliated with a conference either way, because scheduling challenges and extreme travel conditions. This issue will be revisited in future meetings.
