WATERTOWN TO RETURN TO SECTION X-NAC FOOTBALL

The Watertown Cyclones will be returning to the Northern Athletic Conference and Section X football for the 2019 and 2020 seasons, at both the varsity and junior varsity levels. Watertown was part of the NAC in the late 1980s through 2000, but then went back to Section III and the Frontier League for the past 18 seasons. Watertown will essentially fill the slot left with the departure of Tupper Lake to Section III to play in the Eight-Man Football program last year, due to the diminished size of the Lumberjack program. Watertown Athletic Director George Emrich (former Hermon-DeKalb A.D.) indicated that the Cyclones’ return to the NAC-Section X would provide the program with more equitable competition, which would in turn encourage more students to join the football program.
