Eyewitness News first reported Tuesday night, the controversy that arose around the Pennsylvania Heartland Athletic Conference’s vote to not allow Southern Columbia to opt out of a conference game against Shikellamy.

This comes after the four schools involved in the original two games, as well as the two PIAA districts signed off on the switch.

Southern Columbia principal and Heartland Conference President Jim Becker has confirmed to Eyewitness News That Southern Columbia will return to its original scheduled game, hosting Shikellamy.
