IMPORTANT UPDATE for Season 2 sports. Tentative plan is to start conditioning for baseball, softball, tennis, and swimming the week of Feb. 1; soccer, track and golf on Feb. 9; and wrestling and basketball the week of Feb. 22. IMPORTANT: As per the CDPH, athletes will ONLY be allowed to attend 1 cohort at this time. All Athletes will need signed COVID waiver, sports physicals and Family ID online clearance completed. All these forms are available on the MW Website, under Athletics heading.
SPORTS REMINDER: With Season 2 starting this week, VUSD, with recommendations from the Tulare County Health Department, is NOT allowing fans on campus to watch sporting events. This means no parents, teachers, or friends will be allowed to watch student-athletes compete at this time on campus. As soon as this changes, I will send out another update.
