Colonial Conference (New Jersey)

The Colonial Conference is an athletic conference consisting of public high schools located in Camden County and Gloucester County, New Jersey, United States. The Colonial Conference operates under the aegis of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association. It was first established in 1945, and today it is composed of two divisions: Patriot and Liberty.

HistoryEdit

For the 2020-21 school year, Overbrook High School returned to the Tri-County Conference, after being a member of the Colonial Conference from 2008 to 2020. Gloucester City Junior-Senior High School left the Tri-County Conference and took the spot left vacant by Overbrook.[1]

"Gloucester High School is leaving the Tri-County Conference after nearly a century in the organization. Gloucester, a founding member of the TCC in 1928, has been accepted into the Colonial Conference, taking the place of Overbrook, which is moving back to the TCC after leaving in 2008.... The move wasn’t supposed to occur until 2021, but because Overbrook and Gloucester are essentially switching places, both conferences agreed it made more sense to expedite the process."
