FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – NECC member Fairfield’s football season may not begin until much later than originally planned as multiple reports state Elkhart County schools have suspended all athletic contests until late September, and will begin the academic year online.
Fairfield, located in the southeastern part of Elkhart County, is scheduled to play two teams outside the viewing area in weeks one and two, but is slated to begin NECC play September 4 at Central Noble. The Falcons were then to play Fremont, Angola, and West Noble in September.
Meanwhile, other area teams outside the NECC will now have holes in their schedule.
East Noble was slated to play Elkhart County school NorthWood in the second game of the football season on August 28.
Meanwhile, both Wawasee and Warsaw reside outside Elkhart county, but play in the Northern Lakes Conference. That conference includes NorthWood, Goshen, Northridge, and Concord of Elkhart County.
