New Wausa football schedule is released
WAUSA — After flirting with the idea of going down to six-man football for the next two years, Wausa school officials decided last fall to stay in eight-man football.
Yet, those talks last winter were just that – talks – because no action toward a change was taken.
The new two-year eight-man schedule was recently released and it looks like the Vikes will once again have a tough schedule.
Wausa head coach Adrian Alonso said the program has, “moved on and started game planning for next season.”
Wausa is listed as one of the 10 smallest, non-co-op schools in Class D2 with a boys enrollment of 24.
The Vikings are assigned to District D2-3 along with Osmond, Randolph, Winside and Wynot.
If Wausa had dropped to D6 football, the Vikes would not have been in the top 10 enrollment-wise of that classification.
The Vikes will have a tough schedule this year as they face two different state champions.
Osceola-High Plains won the D1 state title in 2019. Osceola is back on its own for 2020, but had plenty of talent returning from the title team.
The Vikes also face Humphrey St. Francis. The Flyers walloped Pleasanton 70-16 to win last year’s D2 State title.
The Vikes will open the 2020 season at home against Niobrara-Verdigre.
