Suttons Bay football program moving to 8-man division

A decision was made by the school Monday night to begin play Norsemen football games in the 8-man division.

LEELANAU COUNTY -- Suttons Bay athletic director Doug Periard confirmed Monday night that the school has voted to move the football program to the 8-man division starting next fall.

This continues a trend of multiple schools in the area that are making the switch to the smaller division which drops three players on the field and reduces the field size.

Schools like Bellaire, Forest Area and Traverse City Christian have moved in the past. Other schools like Mesick and Central Lake have already decided to move since the season ended six weeks ago.
