UPDATE: On Wednesday afternoon, Sylvan-Lucas Athletics Director Craig Batchman confirmed the report, stating that the cooperative agreement would be for baseball only.
Reports have surfaced this morning that Lincoln High School (USD 298) has accepted an agreement with Sylvan-Lucas (USD 299) to re-enter a cooperative baseball program this spring.
The agreement, first reported by Kansas Pregame, will merge the two schools’ baseball programs, saving the Leopards from a lost season. Lincoln’s season had been cancelled after the previous cooperative was ended this past summer.
After a special board meeting this morning it appears Lincoln (@USD298Lincoln) has accepted an invitation to re-enter a cooperative with Sylvan-Lucas (@USD299Syl_Luc) for baseball to save this season for Lincoln after it was previously cancelled. @KeeganM_KPG @dusty40 @JBane87
