MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Phase III of offseason workouts for high school sports teams are underway in many counties across the state. But in three counties, sport-specific practices have been put on hold due to rising coronavirus cases.
On Tuesday, Marion County shut down all sport practices in the three-week instructional window. The pause in activities is for an indefinite amount of time. East Fairmont, Fairmont Senior and North Marion opened up practice sessions on Monday.
Also on Tuesday, Taylor County schools paused practices for winter and spring sports. Fall sport practices at Grafton are allowed to continue.
