Barbe High Schools will not participate in varsity football this season.

According to the Calcasieu Parish School Board, the administration and coaching staff at Barbe High School have decided that Barbe will not participate in the 2020 varsity football season.

Barbe’s freshman and junior varsity teams will continue with games as scheduled.

"Many of Barbe’s players have transferred to other districts to participate in face-to-face instruction that we are not able to offer at this time. Cancelling the 2020 varsity season for the Bucs was not an easy decision, but after the devastation caused by Hurricane Laura, the school’s administration and coaching staff feel this is the best decision for the health and safety of the student athletes," a release stated.

Last week, LeGrange High canceled their 2020 season due to damage from Hurricane Laura. Read more here.
