Due to Covid-19, all schools’ spring sports have been canceled. At first the FHSAA postponed all spring sports until April 15th, but the pandemic became worse as time went on, so they officially canceled all spring sports and championships. This happened after Governor Ron DeSantis announced that schools will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Many athletes were devastated over this decision, especially seniors. Hunter Bailey, 12th grade, said, “I was looking forward to my last track season at Osceola, but it’s all over. I feel like I was going to have a great year and was confident about making it all the way to states, but I can fulfill that goal anymore”.

The FHSAA also was considering extending the high school playoffs all the way into late June, but they felt the right choice was to just cancel everything. Kaden Khammanivong, 11th  grade, said, “I’m sad and upset my track season is over. It was so much fun while it lasted. My dream of making it to states is over for this year.”

At this time, all sports are planned to resume in the fall.
