LAUREL, MD - OCTOBER 18: Laurel High School stadium stands empty after Prince George's County officials postponed all high school sporting events in the wake of the recent sniper attacks October 18, 2002 in Laurel, Maryland. County teams have played no games since a student was shot October 7th in the parking lot of Benjamin Tasker Middle School in nearby Bowie and most Washington-area high school sporting events have been cancelled.

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association’s Board of Directors has announced their plan for fall sports at Massachusetts high schools.

 

Following guidelines set by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, low- and moderate-risk sports like soccer, field hockey, and golf will be allowed to resume with practices starting on September 18.

 

High school football, however, is considered a higher-risk sport, and as such will not be allowed to resume this fall. Currently, a “floating season” that would be played from February through April is being consdiered.
