Flagler dropping football, Hi-Plains dropping volleyball for 2016-17

Two schools have dropped programs for this school year.

Flagler will not field a football team in 2016-17, and Hi-Plains has dropped volleyball.

Both programs were dropped due to a lack of numbers, and both informed the CHSAA office of the decisions on Friday.

Flagler, a 6-man program, went 2-6 last season. It is the third football team to drop in the offseason, following Calhan and Edison.

Hi-Plains volleyball went 9-15 in Class 1A last season.

Players from both programs who wish to continue to participate can either play for a school in their district of attendance or district of residence, per state law.

The schools are not forming a co-op in either sport.
