Is this the end of the Cameron Crazies?
The Cameron High School Crazies, CHS student-athlete fan section, may have to wait until next school year before returning to the grandstands.
With the start of the fall sports season just a few weeks away, and the COVID-19 pandemic entering its second wave, Cameron High School Athletic Program Co-Director Matt Wenck announced seating for games will be limited to just athletes’ parents and immediate relatives.
“[Seating] is going to be limited. We are going to only allow immediate family into the games,” He said. “Our team and the opposing team (crowds), will consist only of parents and grandparents for right now. We’re going to have to social distance, of course, with seating arrangements and family members are going to have to sit with their families. We will do the same thing with volleyball games and softball games.”
Although the seating will be limited, Wenck said one aspect not limited by COVID-19 will be the August 27 start date of the upcoming football season. The Kansas City School District recently announced it will not start classes until more than two weeks after the kickoff of the high school football season. Although in previous years not physically attending class made players ineligible, Wenck said that will not be the case in 2020 with Cameron facing Kansas City Northwest week one and Kansas City Southeast in week two.
“Schools that are going to go virtual can participate in sports and activities. As of right now, we are still playing week one or two of football,” Wenck said.
