The numbers are in, and the post-season fate of the Upton/Sundance Patriot football team has been decided.

Wyoming High School Activities Commissioner Ron Laird says he has recently received the combination school enrollment numbers for Upton and Sundance High Schools, and the Patriots will be eligible to compete in 1A post-season play.

The 2 schools are combining to form an 11-man team this season, because each team may not be able to exist on their own.

With Upton being the host, the WHSAA had to look at average enrollment numbers for 2011-2013 at Upton and combine them with average male enrollment numbers at Sundance.

The number came in at 113.177, which means the team can compete in Class 1A and be eligible for the post-season (Big Horn has the lowest average enrollment numbers in Class 2A at 139.825).

Had Sundance been the host team, the process would’ve been reversed and the Patriots would have most likely been a 2A team, competing in 1A, which would have made them ineligible for the playoffs.

Upton and Sundance will have 4 homes games this season, with the 2 schools splitting home games.

The Patriots are playing Upton’s schedule.

Teams that were originally scheduled to play Sundance this season, have either found a replacement opponent, or is taking the week off.
