St. Thomas Academy is not wanted in the Classic Suburban Conference.
Athletic directors within the conference voted 6-2 in favor of the private school in Mendota Heights leaving the conference, per the Pioneer Press.
The Cadets have dominated the conference and state tournaments of recent memory. The school's basketball (1), alpine skiing (5), swimming and diving (11) and hockey (5) teams have combined to win 22 state championships since 1999. The football team hasn't won a state title since 1975, despite reaching the state tournament eight times since 2000.
