The HDC Conference will have a bit of a different look with softball season in 2014. Due to the addition of an eight-man football program in Pattonsburg, the Pattonsburg and Gilman City school districts will not have a boy's softball program this year. Gilman City and North Daviess will be in an eight-man football co-op with Pattonsburg this year. The team will be known as the Pattonsburg Panthers. Newtown-Harris will not field a girl's softball team this season, with the girls in the Newtown district interested in playing softball going to North Mercer to play for the Lady Cardinals, also as part of a cooperative agreement between the schools. For the second straight year, the Cainsville and Ridgeway school districts will coop in sports, and be known as the East Harrison Bobcats.
