And then the Bayside Athletic Conference Cancelled their winter sports season:
“As of today, every member county currently remains in a virtual learning environment with limited or no on-campus student engagement. Therefore, the Bayside Athletic Conference is canceling the 2020-2021 Winter competition season. Individual county members may provide student-athlete engagement opportunities as they deem safe and appropriate. The conference is continuing to work diligently towards providing Fall and Spring competition seasons.”
Director of Student Services Derek Simmons stated, “We appreciate how difficult it has been to make these kinds of decisions throughout the course of the pandemic, and thank the Bayside Conference for their work.”
