The Surge announces Bishop Carroll and Kapaun Mt. Carmel at Riverfront Stadium
The Wichita Wind Surge announced today they will host their first high school football game, the 60th anniversary of the “Holy War” featuring rivals Bishop Carroll and Kapaun Mt. Carmel at Riverfront Stadium. The game will be played on Friday, October 7 at 7 pm.
“Hosting football games at Riverfront Stadium was always part of the plan when we designed the facility,” said Wind Surge Partner/CEO Jordan Kobritz. “We proved last year it could be done seamlessly when we hosted the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference championship game. The Bishop Carroll/Kapaun Mt. Carmel matchup, the premier high school game in Wichita, will allow both players and fans to enjoy a Wichita tradition in a first-class venue.
“I want to thank the leadership at Bishop Carroll and Kapaun Mt Carmel for their cooperation in making the game at Riverfront Stadium a reality.”
“At Bishop Carroll, we strive to create lasting memories for our students,” said Bishop Carroll Athletic Director, Tyler Fraizer. “Playing in Riverfront Stadium is guaranteed to be an experience they will not forget. A Bishop Carroll/Kapaun Mt. Carmel game will showcase the finest this area has to offer: community…high school athletics… and our host facility, Riverfront Stadium. We are excited to host this event for our players, students, staff, and our strong fan base. I want to thank the incredible staff with the Wind Surge for making this game possible.”
“Kapaun Mt. Carmel Catholic High School is honored to participate in the first high school football game at Riverfront Stadium,” said Rob Knapp, President of Kapaun Mt Carmel Catholic High School. “We want to thank the entire Wind Surge organization for making this two-year home and home series with Bishop Carroll a reality. Riverfront Stadium is an outstanding facility and the natural excitement over the traditional Kapaun versus Carroll football game will be accentuated in this great venue.”
