(WKOW) -- The Rock Valley Conference announced on Friday that they would be delaying their fall sports season to spring due to COVID-19.
According to Dr. Dennis Pauli, Edgerton Superintendent, the Rock Valley Conference will be delaying their fall sports season to after the winter sports season. The spring sports season will start after the fall sports season finishes.
Dr. Pauli said, "The health and wellbeing of students, staff, and families is always our highest priority. The decision made by the Rock Valley Conference was not made lightly and preserves the possibility of participating in typical fall activities in what we all hope is an environment less susceptible to the spread of COVID-19."
The Rock Valley Conference also cancelled all fall middle school sports.
A petition from the School District of Monroe to join the RVC for all eligible sports for the 2020-2021 school year with the caveat that equitable schedules be developed with school size in mind whenever feasible was approved.
