Members of the Healdsburg High School squad voted to disband following routs of 41-0 and 61-0, respectively.

Two players quit the team following the first game, which soon led to additional departures. Among those who remained, the decision was not unanimous.

“We decided to do a blind vote and seven of the 13 said no, they didn’t want to move forward,” said head coach Dave Stine.
