    I would assume that if they stay in district play that their district opponents will have to play them. That is assuming that they get enough to field a team, which is a big IF.

    Trimble County was the second largest school in Class 1A in the original data. They chose to play up to 2A instead.

    Just thinking out loud here: if they are able to field a team, would they be better suited to drop from district play this season and instead play a modified Varsity/JV schedule? Play varsity against the four teams still on the schedule and play JV against everyone else?

    Possibly. I don’t know what their core athletes that stayed with the program are like.

    Lol you’re right. I feel like 2A would end the progress with made. But that’s for another time

    I'm hearing due to public outcry, they delayed the decision until sometime today. supposedly, a last ditch call for players started at 8 AM this morning

    Announced sticking with original decision.

    Unfortunately I don’t see them recovering for next year either

    This is just the beginning. Over the next several years, we're gonna see more and more schools folding their programs. Not gonna be limited to just football....

    I believe a number of these kids have been granted a release to Carroll County. Will this effect the competitive balance in this district? WV beats an all star team of this district but I believe Carroll County is now #2.
