As posted on 11/17/2020 at the CIAC website, "The CIAC Board of Control acted this morning to postpone all winter
sports to January 19, 2021. The CIAC Board of Control will continue to
collaborate with the DPH, Governor Lamont’s office, and the CSMS Sports
Medicine Committee in the weeks leading up to the January 19th start of winter practices. CIAC Interscholastic athletics are an education-based experience that
maintains in-person learning and the health and safety of our school
communities as our top priority. Today’s action supports our member
schools while they continue to manage rising COVID numbers within their
communities and experience widespread movements to distance learning.
After much thought and research, I have regretfully decided to cancel the CT Middle School Cross Country Championship scheduled for November 7. Wickham Park is not allowing any large events this fall. Safety of staff, athletes, coaches, and spectators can not be guaranteed under the pandemic conditions in which we exist. As a retired teacher and coach, I feel for all of you that are going to work in our schools under so much uncertainty and hope that you and your families come out of this healthy and safe.
If there are any of you that would like to try organizing regional meets (recommended by CIAC), and need some advice, feel free to contact me any time.
I look forward to a successful vaccine and a return to a "normal" spring of track and field.
Mike Bendzinski, Meet Director
