Delta Charter drops 2013 soccer team
Delta Charter High School’s soccer team cancelled its 2013 season this week after the school was unable to field the minimum number of players.
It would have been the fourth year for soccer at Delta Charter, which started with seven players and a new coach, Scott Rafferty, when practices started in late August.
Delta Charter athletic director Julia Ulrich reported on Saturday, Sept. 21, that the team completed its roster with 11 players, but only seven were eligible to play. Two were cut after their grades fell below a C average, and two more were ineligible under California Interscholastic Federation transfer policies.
