STHS football schedule changes

Staff reports

A Reno school’s disbanding of varsity football has prompted South Tahoe High to change its 2005 schedule.

Damonte Ranch dropped varsity football last week because of too few numbers to run a safe program. STHS was scheduled to play the Mustangs on Sept. 16.

Vikings’ Athletic Director Don Borges quickly found a replacement for the opening, scheduling a 1 p.m. road game at Forest Hills, Calif., on Sept. 17.

Hug, Douglas, Reno, Carson, Douglas, North Valleys, Fernley and Sparks also must find a replacement game.

Damonte Ranch is a third-year school with an enrollment that falls within Nevada 3A classification.
