Today’s announcement is excellent news for high school sports. At this time we do not yet have the official word from the Governor’s office or the requirements behind this new decision from the California Department of Public Health, but it is sure to come out soon. The Sierra Delta League will meet in the coming days to discuss what, if any changes will occur for the 2020-2021 school year.
At this time, VCHS spring sports are in full swing and preparing for our first contests beginning as soon as March 16th for the Falcon Swim team vs. Will C. Wood high school at 4pm. The Falcon Baseball and Softball teams kick off their season Friday, March 26th vs. Leroy Greene Academy at 4pm, with Track & Field and Golf preparing for April competitions. Our VCMS Cross Country team will open their NSAL middle school season next week.
There are still many unknowns with today’s announcement, but we can all agree that this is exciting news for the future of our athletic programs and our dedicated student-athletes. As more information is released, the VCS Athletics will keep the community up-to-date on what these decisions mean for the VCS Falcons at all levels.
