The spring sports season for local high school teams remains in limbo.
Although school has been canceled statewide through April 30 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the South Carolina High School League has not canceled the spring sports season, opting to suspend it instead.
A week after a late-race bump-and-run pass ended William Byron’s hope of a win in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series, the Hendrick Motorsports driver who cut his teeth in the virtual racing world dominated a crash-filled Food City Showdown at virtual Bristol Motor Speedway.
Byrnes baseball coach Michael Maus knew something was off.
His team was going into the final day of a preseason tournament and had a matchup with Bishop England that afternoon.
“I had a weird feeling,” he said. “I had no idea what it was. I just didn’t feel right getting off the bus.”
Local spring sports teams won’t be getting back on the field anytime soon.
The South Carolina High School League extended its suspension of spring sports activities last week, following an executive order by Gov. Henry McMaster.
The order will keep schools in the state closed through April 30.
