Catholic school ruling may affect Nanticoke sport schedule
Board member says schedules may change, football season may shorten if schools close.

Greater Nanticoke Area School Board member Robert Raineri announced Thursday the district might have to shorten its football season, and make changes to all other sports schedules for the next school year.

“It isn’t going to be easy to do,” Raineri said. “The school district will have to revamp all their sporting schedules.”

The decision is dependent on the Diocese of Scranton decision regarding possible school consolidation, since Nanticoke area schools play against Catholic schools like Bishop O’Reilly.

Raineri said the topic has been tossed around and will be discussed at a meeting in March. A final decision will be made in May.
