Keith Barnes reports that Vincentian has dropped its football program.
"Vincentian Academy has put its football program on hiatus after five years of competing in the WPIAL.
On Monday, the school informed members of the Three Rivers Conference that it would not be fielding a team in 2017 because of a lack of participation and that they would have to find replacement games to fill their schedule.
"We just didn't have enough kids to participate," Vincentian coach Bob Ravenstahl said. "We tried hard and we knew last year when we went into the season that we were thin and we put a concerted effort on the parents and the kids and we just couldn't get enough kids to participate to where we thought it was safe."
As of the 2016 PIAA biennial realignment, Vincentian was the smallest Class 2A school in the WPIAL with only 89 boys as its male enrollment. Serra Catholic, which also plays in the Three Rivers Conference, was second with 141."
