Ten Sleep will not field a football team for the second consecutive year.
The Pioneers’ 2019 six-man season was canceled this week, Ten Sleep AD Sarah Novak said Thursday via email to wyoming-football.com.
Novak said Ten Sleep had seven players come out for the high school team — two freshmen, three sophomores, one junior and one senior. However, the two oldest players suffered injuries, one a season-ending injury and the other significant enough to put the season in question.
“We were planning on playing, but (with) the injury bug it just will not work,” Novak wrote.
Last year’s season was also canceled, as the Pioneers only had four players who showed interest in joining the 2018 team.
Lusk native Taylen Arnett had been named the new head coach for the 2019 season.
