VHSL Postpones Decision On Fall Sports

Jonathan Schwab


Thursday, June 25 -- The Virginia High School League Executive Committee opted on Thursday in a special session to postpone its decision on determining when, or if, a fall sports season will begin this year.

With Virginia currently in Phase II and moving to Phase III in the reopening process next Wednesday, July 1, VHSL staff did not bring forth any recommendations for fall athletic schedules. The VHSL Executive Committee did vote to hold additional meetings in July and August as more information becomes known.

 “All our efforts are working towards advocating for the opening of sports and activities in a safe and reasonable way,” said VHSL Executive Director Dr. John W. “Billy” Haun.  “As we move forward, it would not be reasonable to release at this time a fall schedule or calendar until we learn more about future phases.”

“We are committed to getting this right and getting our students participating in activities,” continued Haun. “I think we can make a much better informed decision once we have more parameters and possible restrictions.”

For our two local high schools, Rockbridge County and Parry McCluer, fall sports include football, volleyball, golf, cross country and competitive cheerleading.
