North Butler High School could be part of a new super conference for the 2015-16 school year.

Athletic director Todd Thompson presented information to the Board of Education Monday about the Corn Bowl Conference aligning with the North Iowa Conference to create a new 18-team league.

Due to Riceville’s acceptance in October to leave the conference and join the Iowa Star Conference in 2015-16, athletic directors don’t think it’s possible to keep the Corn Bowl together scheduling wise.
