YAKIMA, Wash. -- The Columbia Basin Big 9 conference took a big step toward keeping all 15 schools. Tuesday the superintendents or assistant superintendents from all 10 school district in the conference met in Yakima. They all agreed to commit to keeping the conference together.

They will put together a nine-person team of assistant principals, athletic directors, superintendents and WIAA members. The team will draw up what a schedule might look like based on compromising what the north and south area schools want.

"I was very pleased by the turnout, all ten districts came, we had a very good conversation. There's a lot of history to the Big Nine and it's worth fighting for. We've got to pay attention to each other. We've go to talk so... the ten districts need to continue to communicate, and that's what we did today," said Dr. Richard Cole, superintendent of the Sunnyside school district.
