The Heartland Athletic Conference grows by three starting with the 2018-19 school year, including Kearney High as one of the chosen schools.

Lincoln Pius X and Norfolk are the other two full-time members to be.

"Kearney High School looks forward to being long-standing members of the Heartland Athletic Conference and the wonderful opportunities it will provide our students in activities." said Mitchell Stine, CMAA, assistant principal for Activities at Kearney High School. "We think this is a great fit for KHS and are excited to join the strong tradition of excellence in the HAC."

This brings the total to 11 schools, joining the current members from all six Lincoln Public schools, Fremont, and Grand Island.

The last time the conference expanded came more than a decade ago when two new LPS high schools - North Star (2003) and Southwest (2002) - were opened.
