At its meeting on Tuesday, the South Central Conference denied a request by St. James Area to have the Saints football program leave the SCC.
SJA was requesting to stay in the conference for all other sports, but have the football program leave the SCC for another conference alignment.
The vote was 5 votes against and St. James was the 1 vote for the request.
The outcome of this vote will probably be discussed at the next St. James School Board meeting in April.
The Board and the community will have to consider the option of staying in the SCC or making a request to move to another conference.
