Things continue to change for Dayton (Ohio) area teams due to the fear of the continued spread of the coronavirus.
The Trotwood-Madison City School District announced it would suspend all sports and extracurricular activities for the first nine weeks of the coming school year as they cited the current health status in Montgomery County with the area at Level 3 on the state’s public health advisory system.
Despite the announcement from the Ohio High School Athletic Association that fall sports can proceed as planned, school districts and conferences continue to make adjustments due to the pandemic.
For the Rams, the announcement means they will not have a chance to repeat as a state champion as they defeated Mansfield Senior for the Division III title last December.
The league includes Xenia, Butler, Piqua, Greenville, Tippecanoe, Troy, Stebbins, West Carrollton, Fairborn, and Sidney.
As we’re learning, despite the announcement from the OHSAA, programs are not sure of having a season this fall as each school, league, or conference has to make decisions based upon their guidelines in keeping their students safe.
