CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming High School Activities Association has approved moving Saratoga, NSI Academy and Wyoming Indian down to six-man football for the 2013 season.
All three schools cited declining enrollment and participation numbers for dropping out of 11-man football.
Some members of the WHSAA board voiced concern Tuesday about it being too easy for 1A schools to drop down to six-man. There was discussion about establishing a set number of 11-man schools or a hard enrollment cutoff between 11-man and six-man classifications but no decisions were made.
In other action, the Casper Star-Tribune reports the board approved a basketball mercy rule. If a team leads by 40 or more points heading into halftime or at any point in the second half, a running clock will take effect.
