EUREKA, Kan. (KSNT) - Eureka Jr./Sr. High School will have no home football games this season because of tornado damage. The school's track and field was "totaled" after a tornado hit Eureka back in June.
"This year we will play on the road. Next year we're going to get those games back, so we'll be all at home so it's over a two year span," said Principal Sean Spoonts.
Spoonts says they haven't completely ripped up the field because the district hasn't decided how the field will be reconstructed. A practice gym on the school's campus was also destroyed during the tornado.
According to Spoonts, there will also be no home track and field meets this spring.
"It will be different, but at least we get to play. We will take what we can get," said Senior Quarterback Cade Burden.
Burden admits it will be different having the cheerleaders, band and even homecoming while away at other schools. Although this will be his last year, meaning he won't have another chance to play on his home field, he says he's confident the community will come together to make each game special.
