The IHSAA announced Indiana High School Football Sectional sites for 2019 and 2020. Mishawaka’s road to the Regional has a new look as the Cavemen move up from Class 4A to 5A. MHS is in a group with Concord, Elkhart Central, Elkhart Memorial and South Bend Adams in 2019. The next year, Elkhart Memorial and Elkhart Central will consolidate to Elkhart High School The new EHS will move up to 6A, so the Cavemen will be grouped with Concord, Goshen and South Bend Adams in a 4-team Sectional.
“You look at the names in 5A and there are certainly some great football programs across the state,” said Mishawaka Director of Athletics Dean Huppert. “And we consider ours to be one of them. Coach Kinder and his staff don’t worry about who we play in the tournament. They prepare all year to get ready for big games in the postseason.” Mishawaka’s 2nd year head coach said, “I’m excited that we’re included in the tournament. Every time sectionals are released, you just look for your name to see it there. Both Sectional 9 and 10 present challenges, so either sectional would have been a challenge for us. There are great programs and coaches in Sectional 10, and it should be an exciting November.”
