Rosalia going alone, will compete as independent

 

The partnership between Tekoa-Oakesdale and Rosalia in football – which goes back to 2003 – is over.

The schools decided to go separate ways this year when a proposal to consolidate in all sports failed.

Rosalia will play as a 1B independent this fall.

Tekoa-Oakesdale will field a junior varsity team with hopes of returning to the Southeast 1B next fall, Teakoa-Oakesdale athletic director Ken Lindgren said.

If Rosalia finishes the regular season with a .500 record or better, it will face the No. 4 team from the SE 1B in a playoff game for the chance at a state play-in game.
