Virginia makes the early call: no fall high school football
VIRGINIA – With about a month remaining before fall sports practices are to get underway here on Delmarva, Virginia has made their decision.
No football. At least for this fall.
There is still a chance we can see football in Accomack County this school year.
The Virginia High School League is looking into adopting one of three proposals for high school sports — none of which include sports in the fall.
Under the first plan sports schedules would remain in tact, but high-contact sports like field hockey, football, cheer and volleyball would have their seasons canceled.
The second plan calls for spring and fall sports to be flipped, with high-contact sports in the spring like football and lacrosse, and tennis, soccer, baseball and softball in the fall.
Under the third proposal, all sports would see a condensed season with winter sports beginning in mid-December, fall sports starting up in mid-February and spring sports getting started in mid-April.
The VHSL will vote on a final plan on July 27.
