Interesting discussion about the future for Pana. My prediction......football will continue to qualify for the playoffs and soccer will become competitive in the conference in the very near future.
how good is the conference?

With Marquette out of the SCC, you are left with mostly rural class A schools. Teams in the SCC can rise and fall with the addition of a handful or even just one club soccer player. I'd guess a few Pana soccer players do/will play out of Decatur with MidState.

I'd compare the strength of the conference to be similar to the strength in SCC football. Litchfield and Carlinville in particular have had postseason success in recent years. Even with Marquette in the league, Litchfield, Carlinville, Greenville, and Hillsboro have challenged for or won the SCC title in recent years.

Now 10-11 and 11-12 records aren't listed, but they did win a regional in 11. So I think just looking at the records one could argue that adding football at Plains hurt the soccer program. I don't see as you said that Plains is having good teams in both of these at the same time.

2. It does matter when numbers are down and teams are losing what often happens.?Coaches get fired.

3. There is at least 1 who played football and maybe a couple of others. Not sure if they had gone out in the past or not. The talk is the one wasn't going out for football even if their was no soccer. Who knows, he is actually playing both golf and soccer so that is good. The impact on football won't happen right away, as the Soph-Sr. have never had the choice so some have given up on soccer awhile agao, and others like football so they are sticking with it. It will be interesting to see what happens down the road. Will some of these players stick with youth soccer longer now that they have the option in high school? Will they then choose to stay with soccer in high school insted of football. That is when the true test will be.
That's incorrect, as for whatever reason IHSA doesn't have Plain's 09-10 and 10-11 records, which were both well over .500. In fact, the 10-11 team was one of the best non-Rochester Class A teams I've ever seen in Central Illinois.

If a football team is under-performing and a coach gets fired because of it, I don't think 1-2 kids who chose soccer over football were going to make a difference. Isn't the football team losing those couple of kids worth it to give another 15+ a chance to participate in a fall sport? That's what high school sports are all about correct?

And congrats to Pana on their first victory, especially with it coming this early in their inaugural season.

Yes I said the information wasn't posted on the IHSA website. What you haven't done is shown me that Plains has had good soccer and football teams at the same time as you claimed they have.

A team can have a bad record and not be under-performing.
