Second Indiana high school football program cancels season

Aug 1, 2018 by

A second Indiana high school announced Monday it would not field a varsity football team this fall.

Hammond Bishop Noll, a Class 2A program, notified the Indiana High School Athletic Association that it would not have a varsity team this season or next season because of low participation numbers. The school posted on its web site that it would play a junior varsity schedule the next two seasons as most of its players are currently freshmen.

“At the conclusion of the 2017-18 school year, we are optimistic about our program’s numbers for this fall,” Bishop Noll principal Lorenza Jara Pastrick said in a statement issued by the school Monday. “This summer, we have been monitoring those numbers daily throughout conditioning to assure ourselves we would have experienced players to participate safely in a varsity season.

“Unfortunately, due to low numbers of upperclassmen on the first official day of practice (Monday), we feel we cannot fully commit to competing at the varsity level right now.
