XC will not start on February 1st, 2021

The Kingco League voted today to delay the start of all Fall sports. WIAA announced last week that these sports would begin on February 1st. Discussions are taking place this week with school districts to determine the best time to start. Leagues were given permission to determine the best scenario for their covid situation.

As soon as I hear what the plan is going forward, I will post the information on this website.

STAY TUNED!
