MONTPELIER — The Vermont high school sports season was officially delayed today during Governor Phil Scott’s Tuesday morning press conference.

The first day of practice was set for November 30, but it was announced that the start of all Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA) activities would be delayed due to the rising numbers of COVID cases throughout the state.

“Like recreational sports, (school sports) are paused until further notice. We will review it again each week,” Scott said during a media briefing.

“There is light at the end of the tunnel, and we will get there,” Scott said.
