Tri-9 changing its name to Southwest Wake Athletic in 2013

February 18, 2013
Tri-Nine Conference



It had already been decided the Tri-9 Conference would have a different name next year, with one fewer team. Most thought it would go back to the Tri-8 Conference, which lasted three years prior to the addition of Holly Springs.

Instead, it’s getting a complete makeover. Starting next fall, the existing eight schools will make up the Southwest Wake Athletic Conference.

The Tri- prefix has existed since 1989. But the name would be a misnomer given its origins that meant “tri-county.” With Lee County becoming a 3A team next fall, all eight members will be Wake County schools.

With every N.C. High School Athletic Association quad-yearly realignment, the conference name became more tied to southwestern Wake County.
