“We met as a conference, but a lot of the decisions are being made more by school districts and counties than by conferences,” said Millington athletic director Jason Germain, who chairs the Tri-Valley Conference athletic directors committee. “Some of our schools are following the recommendations and pausing. It’s a decision the school districts and administrators had to make, and it wasn’t an easy decision. The primary focus is the safety of our student-athletes.”
Some Saginaw-area high school spring sports programs follow ‘pause’ recommendation Millington opted to continue to play spring sports.
Saginaw High, Arthur Hill, Saginaw Arts & Sciences, Saginaw Heritage and Coleman are following the recommendation and pausing for two weeks. Midland High and Midland Dow are pausing for one week. MORE
Saginaw-area teams that chose to continue its spring sports activities include Merrill, Millington, Michigan Lutheran Seminary, Mount Pleasant, Freeland, Vassar, Ithaca, Saginaw Nouvel, Swan Valley, Hemlock, St. Louis, Breckenridge, Valley Lutheran, Caro, Frankenmuth, Carrollton, Alma, St. Charles, Sanford Meridian and Shepherd. “With the testing and masks and playing outdoors and all the structure we have in place, our spring athletes might be the safest students at our school,” Germain said. “With us being outside, we feel comfortable letting them play. We have fans at our games but being outside allows us to use our space and really spread out.”
