Help Us Name The New League

Our school has agreed to join five other schools to form a new KSHSAA league for athletics and activities, beginning August 2018. The new, yet to be named, league includes: Basehor-Linwood High School; De Soto High School; Lansing High School; Leavenworth High School; Shawnee Heights High School; and Turner High School.

We are actively taking suggestions for what the new league should be named throughout the month of July. Student representatives from each of the six schools will meet in early August to review the names suggested and provide a final list of recommendations for consideration and approval by the schools' Athletics/Activities Directors & Principals.
You can learn more and share your ideas by clicking "Help Us Name The New League" above no later than Monday, July 31.
