Edgewood High School drops lawsuit against Madison, plans to apply for field lights

Emily Hamer:

The lawsuit alleged that the city discriminated against the private Catholic school on religious grounds by treating it differently than other high schools.

The city said Edgewood’s master plan prohibited the school from hosting games on its field, but Madison’s public high schools’ games were allowed because they do not have master plans. Madison’s City Council approved repeal of the Edgewood’s master plan in January, paving the way for daytime games but leaving the possibility of night games an open question.
