Student involvement crucial to success

The silence at its track and on its baseball and softball diamonds was saddening for Gibraltar Athletic Director Peggy Tanck. COVID-19 claimed the end of the basketball seasons in the state before canceling out the entire spring sports schedule. A National Federation of State High School Associations report shows being involved in sports and other activities help produce healthier behaviors and better educational outcomes, enhance school engagement, and promote positive youth development and life skills. Tanck believes her student-athletes missed interacting with each other on a daily basis during the time away from the building.

As for the fall season, Tanck says it is business as usual until the WIAA rules otherwise.  The WIAA Board of Control will meet next week to discuss details about what a fall season could look like if it is safe to hold events.
