Clarion, C-L School Boards Vote to Combine Football Programs

CLARION, Pa.  – It’s the dawn of a new day in Clarion County sports history, as Clarion and Clarion-Limestone are coming together to form a cooperative agreement in football.

The Board of Directors of both schools voted to approve the co-op at separate meetings Tuesday night meaning that starting with the 2019 season, the once rivals will now be one team pending PIAA approval, which District 9 football chairman Bob Tonkin believes is just a formality.

Clarion approved the measure with an 8-0 vote (board member Todd Bauer was absent from the meeting). C-L approved it 7-2 with board members Jamie Mahle and Roger Powell voting against it.
