From Coach Salliewhite, AD
I would like to inform everyone that effective immediately all McCormick County Athletics are suspended until further notice. There is a level of uncertainty with the number of COVID-19 cases in surrounding areas increasing daily. As athletic director, I want to protect my coaches and student athletes to the best of my ability. I hope each of you understand and respect this decision from the athletic department. However, I will revisit this decision on July 13th and make a sound decision with everyone in mind. I am going to take the next week to evaluate the COVID-19 cases and how other athletic departments are moving forward.
