Tippecanoe Valley staying in TRC

Tippecanoe Valley is the second northeast Indiana school to decline an invitation to the Northern State Conference.

Valley athletic director Duane Burkhart confirmed in an email Tuesday turning down the NSC's invitation on Monday, citing the instability of the soon-to-be four-team conference. Tippecanoe Valley will remain in the Three Rivers Conference.
