In spite of new regulations that would allow them to take part in sports during COVID-19, the students on the Kenwood girls cross-country team elected not to compete during the fall season.
According to Kenwood Athletic Director Les Gill, the girls cross-country team made the decision due to the constraints of remote learning and the COVID-19 pandemic. Gill said the boys cross-country team will look to compete this season in spite of the girls opting out.
"It's very difficult right now in sports with some coaches," said Gill. "Some sports are a little more difficult to play than others."
Gill said in an interview with the Herald that the girls cross-country team will not be penalized for not competing this season. He stressed how difficult this off-season has been for coaches and parents due to remote learning and concerns for student safety.
Gill said in a past article with the Herald, that his number one objective as AD of Kenwood is that all students remain safe.
