Indian River Baseball Booster Club: FUTURE CONFERENCE
The baseball landscape for the Indian River Braves will change drastically in the 2015-2016 academic year. No longer will Great Bridge be competing for the same Conference Championship as the Braves and Hickory as Great Bridge has been reclassified on its population base to 4A.
The Braves remain a 5A South school and will face Beach schools: Green Run, Kempsville, Princess Anne and Salem; Norfolk schools Maury and Norview and, in Chesapeake, Hickory. Their Conference is #9.
Other changes for familiar foes have Oscar Smith, Western Branch and Grassfield now lumped in with Norfolk's Granby and Woodside on the Peninsula in the 6A South, Conference 2.
Great Bridge joins Deep Creek, King's Fork, Churchland, Lake Taylor and Woodrow Wilson in the 4A East Conference 17.
Suffolk's Nansemond River will be in 5A South Conference 11 with the past two years' Braves foes: Hampton, Warwick, Menchville Gloucester and newly-reclassified down to 5A: Bethel and Kecoughtan.
