While other area teams know the layout of their upcoming football seasons, Seneca High School’s plans are still up in the air. On Tuesday, Aug. 6, administration decided to cancel the 2013 varsity football season, and have only a junior varsity team this season.
“Since we made the decision, we’ve been trying to reschedule games as quickly as we can,” said David Boland, administrator and principal of Seneca High School.
The decision, while not an easy one to make, was settled upon, in hopes of rebuilding the team for the future. “There were only 18 kids who came to the sign-up meeting and none of them were seniors,” Boland said.
Boland added that since their numbers are small, it wasn’t a complete surprise. “We’ve seen it coming for three to four years now. With enrollment at Seneca High School standing around 70 students, 18 is a pretty typical number percentage wise,” Boland admitted.
