Maryland School District Cancels Fall, Winter Sports

Brock Fritz Headshot

Student-athletes at the largest school district in Maryland will be sitting on the sidelines throughout the rest of 2020.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted Montgomery County Public Schools to cancel fall and winter sports for all 25 county high schools during the 2020-21 school year. Fall prep sports have been canceled and postponed in a number of places across the country, but Montgomery County took it a step further by also eliminating winter sports well ahead of time.

The decision was made in conjunction with the school district’s announcement that it will provide virtual-only learning throughout first semester. The district may return to in-person instruction and spring sports for second semester, as the current plan will be reassessed in November.
