Today’s Announcement to Cancel Schools
As we have stated in our previous communications, today’s announcement by Governor DeWine to close schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year also will now result in the cancellation of OHSAA-sponsored spring sports seasons including tournaments
Although this decision by OHSAA does not come as a surprise, it doesn’t make the effects of the decision any easier. Spring student-athletes and especially the senior class, my heart goes out to you. I know the importance that sport participation plays in the lives of our student-athletes and it saddens me that the opportunity to compete will not be available this spring sports season.
Unfortunately our future is very uncertain at this time and we do not know when we will be able to return to school and sport as we once knew it. I can’t wait for that day! In the meantime, I sincerely hope that all in the Redmen Nation practice appropriate social distancing and remain healthy so we can beat this pandemic and return to play as soon as possible!
