New COVID-19 cases curb La Conner High off-season workouts
August 12, 2020
The sun has set on La Conner High summer conditioning sessions.
La Conner coaches have pulled the plug on the optional off-season workouts as a public health and safety response to recent spikes in confirmed local COVID-19 cases.
“We had a few unrelated cases in the Swinomish community, so we decided to postpone it,” new head football coach Jeff Scoma said of the outdoor training.
Scoma told the Weekly News that more than 20 players were regularly taking part in his workouts, which focused on running, agility drills and tire-flipping.
“We had solid numbers,” he said.
