Uniting Schools for Excellence in Academics and Athletics
BRANSON, MO (October 11, 2023) - Six Ozark Mountain area high schools have formed a new conference. Beginning in the 2024-2025 school year, Branson, Bolivar, Carl Junction, Logan-Rogersville, Marshfield, and West Plains school districts will compete in the newly named Ozark Mountain Conference.
