At the November 24 School Committee meeting, Athletic Director Mr. John Brown presented the proposed plan for the winter sports season including adjustments and modifications presented by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). 

The winter sports that will occur in the winter season include boys and girls ice hockey, boys swimming and diving, boys and girls alpine and Nordicc skiing, and gymnastics. The sports that the Athletic Department cancelled for the winter season but that Mr. Brown, the Athletic Department and the MIAA will consider for a season between February 22 and April 25 include indoor track and field, dance, and wrestling.

The School Committee must vote on these major sports decisions in order for the school to implement them.

“The Committee discussed the proposed plan for winter sports and voted unanimously for the winter sports plan,” said School Committee Vice Chair Ms. Melissa Martin. “The inclusion of boys and girls basketball this winter season is still under consideration pending further information. This is expected to be discussed at a future School Committee meeting.”

(Update): Upon further discussion, on December 8, the School Committee voted unanimously in favor of a winter boys and girls basketball season.
