As the upcoming sports season rolls in many students are looking forward to being able to get out on the court and be active. “I am looking forward to finally getting back on the court and playing competitively. I can’t wait to see our players back in the gym together,” Assistant Girls Basketball Coach Jessie Nunley said.  CHSAA made the decision in early fall to shorten the sports season in order to make room for schools to have all sports seasons, with a starting date of January and ending in June.

Grace Allen (10) is ready to be back on the court. “I am looking forward to being around my friends and coaches and playing the sport I love,” she said.  Having a sports season is something many people are looking forward to, but the ongoing COVID restrictions are causing concern. Facing the new challenge of playing basketball or any sport with a mask on is yet another thing people have to adjust to. Waiting to see how things will play out is how we’ve been going about the year. Starting the football season and then going all remote has been a difficult transition for students. Many students responded to an online poll that they were excited about the upcoming sports seasons.

The first game was supposed to be Tuesday the 26 in Peyton, but it was rescheduled for this Friday, January 29.  The first home game will be tomorrow, Thursday the 28 vs Rye at 5:00PM. Home games will be live streamed. “We will have limitations on who can attend games. Those limitations will be based on the State COVID dial and venue capacity restriction,” said Jessie Nunley.
