CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Canfield High School will not have a Homecoming game, and a last-minute replacement game is “unlikely,” according to the district.
According to a post on the Canfield Local School District’s website, the game was canceled “due to circumstances beyond their control.” The post did not elaborate, and the district has not given further comment.
Thomas Ott, deputy chief of communications for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District that represents Cleveland Rhodes, said he was told that the teams had never signed a contract, therefore, no game was actually scheduled.
Canfield had its Homecoming game on the schedule for Friday, Sept. 30.
There is no game listed on Cleveland Rhodes’ online schedule for that date.
Canfield’s Athletic Department is now looking for a replacement team, but due to the late notice, this is unlikely to happen, according to the district.
To keep the Homecoming weekend tradition, the crowning of the 2022 Canfield High School Homecoming Queen will take place at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, October 1 in the CHS auditorium.
The dance will go on as scheduled from 7-10 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria.
The Homecoming Court and Queen will be recognized during the Varsity Football home game on Friday, October 14, 2022, against Howland. This is also Military and First Responder Night.
