Juneau, AK (KINY) - The merger request sent by the Juneau School District to combine the football teams of Juneau-Douglas and Thunder Mountain has been approved by the Alaska School Activities Board.
Next fall will see the two teams brought together in an effort to have a safer, more competitive game, as well help lower financial costs. This move will also combine the cheerleader teams.
The decision had been on the minds of school officials for a few years now. The finer details of team colors, bus routes, etc have yet to be set.
