Uniontown’s football team may leave the WPIAL before next season

Albert Gallatin may not be the only Fayette County football team leaving the WPIAL.

Uniontown’s school board will decide Monday night whether to withdraw its football team from WPIAL competition before next season, according to an item on the school board’s meeting agenda. The football team is mired in a 22-game losing streak and went 3-45 combined over the past five seasons.

The item on Uniontown’s agenda says: “Recommend approval for administration to move forward on withdrawing from the WPIAL for the 2019-2020 football season.”

Uniontown finished 0-10 last season and was outscored 433-99. The team also went winless in 2017.

Albert Gallatin decided in October that its football team will not compete in the WPIAL next season and instead play an independent schedule against out-of-state opponents.

Albert Gallatin also went 0-10 this past season, bringing its record to 9-82 over the past decade.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
