I had the opportunity Friday morning to spend a couple of hours in Farmington, where I spoke with athletic director Brad Blew and coaches Mike Adams, Beau Thompson and Brad Johnson about the school’s upcoming move to Class 5A status.
Farmington has played its final game in the 4A-1 Conference and will be a member of the 5A-West Conference when classes resume in August.
One of the dramatic changes Farmington faces will be the lack of a natural rival in the new league, basically because it’s so spread out throughout about one-fourth of the state. Farmington’s new conference foes range in distance from Harrison at 80 miles away to Little Rock Christian at 190 miles.
So, let’s get some views on this subject. Who do you think will become Farmington’s natural rival in the 5A-West Conference and why?
Your choices, should you want to participate, are:
- Little Rock Christian
Let’s hear from you. Your responses will be appreciated.
