MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon activities director Justin Sanford said the school has “no interest” to join a new conference.

A report originally published by the Circleville Herald earlier this week stated nine schools around Central Ohio met last week to discuss forming a new league. One of the schools, according to the report, was Mount Vernon.

On Friday, Sanford contacted members of the Ohio Cardinal Conference as well as local news media via email, denying any involvement with the purported new league.
