LYON COUNTY (KSNT) – Northern Heights High School in Lyon County announced to parents and fans that they will not play Friday against Olpe.

In a statement to parents, the school said:

“Our team has recently experienced some unexpected turnover, resulting in significant changes. The team needs this time to regroup and learn a whole new offense & defense to have a chance to compete in the future.”

Superintendent Robert Blair told 27 News injuries also played a part in the cancellation. With several senior players not cleared to play, the school is taking precautions to prevent injury to younger players.
