Girls Basketball Forced to Abandon Junior Varsity Season
After sign-ups took place for the 2016-17 Black Hawk girls basketball season, coaches and administrators decided to attempt a junior varsity season, in spite of having only twelve players. Coach Flanagan and athletic director Curt Leuzinger were committed to making a JV season work, as doing so would provide expanded opportunities for developing players. Having two teams with just twelve girls would have been difficult but possible.
The circumstances have changed for the program. The limited participation has created a situation for the coaches and administration to reassess the decision made earlier. The coaching staff and administration have decided it is in the best interest of the athletes to move forward with only a varsity program this season.
We expect this to be a one-year situation and wanted the public to be aware of the variables that contributed to the decision.
