The winter season has already made its presence felt on the spring season, and that means games and meets need to have decisions made, including rescheduling and canceling them. That is where the job of an Athletic Director comes into play.
24 events have been canceled or postponed throughout the Packerland conference so far this spring season, with field conditions being unplayable in most of the area. Sturgeon Bay’s AD Todd Meikle said that rescheduling is a big task at hand, but student safety is the biggest thing when it comes to when those games get played.
Southern Door’s Athletic Director Mark Jonas has also been put through the ringer when it comes to dealing with rescheduling, as the girls softball game set for Tuesday the 28th was canceled with just hours before the game was set to play.
Makeup games that include getting referees or umpires and more workers to run the games have become hard to come by, forcing games to become canceled instead of postponed to a later date.
The two Athletic Director’s jobs should become a bit easier within the next few weeks, as future forecasts show multiple days of sun and rain, with the only snow possibility being over the weekend.
