No varsity football this season at Nicolet High School — but why?
GLENDALE (WITI) — Nicolet High School’s Athletic Director says the high school will not have varsity football this season. Why? Because the school doesn’t have enough football players.
Kirk Krychowiak, Athletic Director for Nicolet High School, issued the following statement regarding the school’s varsity football team:
“Nicolet High School has always considered excellence in athletics to be a key component of the quality education we provide to our students. The success we have achieved in our athletic programs is a direct result of the enthusiasm of our coaches, students and the community.
Due to an insufficient number of student athletes at the varsity football level, the district administration has decided not to field a varsity football team for the 2014 season. Nicolet will have Junior Varsity and Freshmen programs and we are making arrangements for senior athletes to play this season.
We have started efforts to improve our football program moving forward to ensure that students will have the opportunity to play in the future. Plans are already in place to upgrade the school’s athletic facilities, for football in particular, which is sorely needed to improve the quality of the program and student participation.”
