GLENDALE, Wis. (AP) – A Milwaukee-area high school has announced it will cancel its varsity football season.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Nicolet High School released a statement Thursday saying the decision is a result of low participation. The junior varsity and freshmen programs won’t be affected.
The athletic director says the school is looking for a way to allow senior athletes to play this season. He says he is optimistic that the varsity team will make a comeback.
The athletic director says he isn’t sure if the missed games will be considered forfeits.
The Nicolet Knights had a 0-9 record last season. The team hasn’t made it to the playoffs since 1989.
