Our school system like the NCHSAA believes in the value of education-based athletics and knows how important it is to our student athletes. We will continue to focus on the things that we can control here locally to ensure the health and safety of our student athletes and staff so that we can return to play as soon as possible. I continue to ask for your patience, compliance, and understanding as we work through these challenging times due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Have a great evening,
David Koontz, CAA
