Cedarcrest High School sports will move to the Wesco conference at the end of this school year, when the Cascade Conference, to which it currently belongs, will be dissolved.

District staff announced the decision to parents via a school newsletter recently, describing the decision process for finding a new conference. Cedarcrest had belonged to the Cascade Conference since it was created in 2014. It and Archbishop Murphy were the only 2A schools in the league; the remaining 1A schools proposed the dissolution so they could compete with only other 1A schools.

The decision to dissolve Cascade Conference was finalized in December.

In addition to Wesco, Cedarcrest had considered the Northwest League, but determined it would require too much student travel to participate, and KingCo, made up primarily of 3A and 4A teams.

Next fall, Cedarcrest will join 2A/3A schools Arlington, Edmonds-Woodway, Everett, Lynnwood, Marysville-Getchell, Marysville-Pilchuck, Meadowdale, Mountlake Terrace, Oak Harbor, Shorecrest, Shorewood, Snohomish and Stanwood, and 4A schools Cascade, Glacier Peak, Jackson, Kamiak, Lake Stevens, Mariner, Monroe and Mount Vernon.
