Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain Football teams to combine into new team

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Juneau School District released a statement about the merging of the Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain Football and cheerleading teams.
According to the release, the Alaska School Activities Association has determined that Juneau can operate as a district rather than a specific school.
This means that the district will be looking to establish a consolidated football team with a new mascot, team name, and colors without being designated to Juneau-Douglas or Thunder Mountain.
The first order of business is to manage the debt that the teams had before the merger, then once that is settled a group will be created to decide the identity of the new team.
