HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Millersburg Area Forfeits Week 8 Due to Injury

The Millersburg Area Football team has forfeited Week 8 of the High School Football regular season due to injury.

After injuries suffered during the regular season and most recently Week 7 when they played against the Tri-Valley Bull Dogs, the Millersburg Area School District has made the following announcement

Members of the Millersburg Area School District Community,

Our first responsibility as educators is the health, safety and welfare of our students. This responsibility also extends to our extracurricular programs. Due to multiple injuries sustained throughout the season, most recently against Tri-Valley on October 4, we are forfeiting our football game vs. Susquenita High School on Friday, October 11. The administration finalized this decision through communications with our coaching staff, board of school directors, and the PIAA. We are unable to safely field a football team for this week’s game against Susquenita. We will continue to evaluate the status of our players’ health each week to decide if we can safely compete in our remaining football games for the remainder of this season.

We are still planning to celebrate our students on Friday, October 11 as part of Millersburg Area’s “History in the Making” themed athletic events in 2019. The district desires to appreciate this memorable event for the students as well as the Millersburg community.

Keeping with tradition, the district will be recognizing senior members of the Marching Band, Band Front, Golf, Cross Country, and Football teams and their parents. We will also be recognizing past and present members of football, cheerleading, and band. The Marching Band will be presenting their halftime show in its entirety.

There will be no admission charged for this event. We encourage all Millersburg Area alumni to come out and share our “Indian Pride” on October 11, 2019 beginning at 7:00 pm at the athletic stadium. Free T-shirts, sponsored by Mid Penn Bank, will be available to the first 250 spectators in attendance.

Additional information will be shared later this week regarding activities for the evening of October 11th.

Let’s pack the stands! #IndiansPride

During Week 7, Tri-Valley defeated Millersburg 35-13.
