A change is coming in the Massachusetts high school sports landscape.
On Thursday, Austin Preparatory School revealed plans to join the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC), effective at the start of the 2022-2023 academic year.
With the change, the independent Catholic school for boys and girls from grades 6-12, located in Reading, Mass., will conclude its membership in the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA).
"As a baseball coach, I'm very excited for it," said Austin Prep baseball coach Jon Pollard. "It's a greater opportunity to work with athletes and compete in a premier program across New England and nationally."
