The Toledo Area Athletic Conference announced Wednesday that Gibsonburg would become the eighth member of the league.
According to league commissioner Dick Nowak, Gibsonburg will be a voting member of the league as of Jan. 1, 2010, and will compete for league championships starting in the 2011-12 season.
Currently the TAAC has seven full-time members: Cardinal Stritch, Danbury, Emmanuel Christian, Maumee Valley, Northwood, Ottawa Hills and Toledo Christian. Edon and Hilltop are football-only members of the league; Emmanuel Christian and Maumee Valley do not sponsor football.
Gibsonburg has been a member of the Suburban Lakes League from its inception for the 1972-73 season. In May five current SLL schools – Eastwood, Genoa, Lake, Otsego and Woodmore – announced that they were forming the Northern Buckeye Conference along with Rossford.
Fostoria and a sixth SLL school, Elmwood, have since joined the NBC.
