On Wednesday, Dec. 7 the WIAA District 9 1B League voted to welcome both Dayton and Waitsburg into their league as individual schools beginning with the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.   This means Dayton will have all the same opportunities for sports we have had in the past and will be part of a league playing schools at a similar competitive level and much closer to home.  The league will comprise two divisions; Wheat and Grape.  The teams in each division will be as follows.

Wheat: Colton, Garfield-Palouse, Oakesdale, Pomeroy, St John/Endicott/Lacrosse, Tekoa-Rosalia, and Dayton.
Grape: Desales, Liberty Christian, Prescott, Sunnyside Christian, Touchet, Yakama Nation, and Waitsburg.

Planning is also already underway for Spring camps for both volleyball and football as we prepare to usher in a new era of Dayton Bulldog Athletics.  We are also posting coaching positions as needed for anyone interested in taking on those roles.

If you have any questions or want more information on the future of Dayton Bulldog Athletics, please reach out to Athletic Director, Sam Korslund: 509-382-4775 x. 239 or
