A New Season of Athletics

Our second sports season is well underway and athletes and coaches have been enjoying the great spring weather!  While improved health metrics are allowing for some spectators at contests, space is still limited.  Baseball and softball contests will require a ticket, which are given to athletes to distribute.  Tennis, golf, and track are not ticketed, but each athlete is allowed one spectator for away events and two for home events.

For additional details, please visit the NEHS website: https://nehs.4j.lane.edu/2021/03/16/athletic-update/
