Stanford Athletic Director Vance Von Bergen had good news for the Denton-Geyser-Stanford co-op when he returned from Helena on Monday. The Board of Directors of the Montana High School Association approved moving the DGS football team from eight-man back to six-man, beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.
It is good news for the co-op. Football Coach Matt Neumann figures he may only have 10 boys play football next fall according to a report Neumann presented to a co-op board meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8.
According to a press release from the MHSA on Wednesday, Hot Springs, Gardiner and Broadview-Lavina will also move from eight-man football to six-man football. DGS will play in the Northern C six-man division, while Gardiner and Hot Springs will play in the western division and Broadview-Lavina will play in the southern division.
In addition, the MHSA Executive Board approved a co-op of the three schools for boys’ track. Since the three schools began their co-op, the MHSA allowed them to co-op in all sports except for boys’ track. Now boys’ track will be one team of Bearcats.
