Lansing School District announces cancellation of all fall sports

No fall sports in Lansing this year.

Chalk up another sports casualty to the COVID-19 pandemic here in the Mitten State.

The Lansing School District has decided to pull the plug on all fall sports out of an abundance of caution amidst the coronavirus outbreak.

And not just sports, but band and cheerleading too.

“Along with formally submitting our plan for Lansing, we are also announcing the cancellation of all fall extra-curricular school activities until further notice, and that includes all sports, band, and cheerleading,” said superintendent Sam Sinicropi. “I know how disappointing the cancellation of sports and extra-curricular activities may be for students, coaches and parents, but the school district must make decisions moving forward that makes safety our top priority. Unlike college and professional sports where decisions are driven by money, our decisions about sports and extracurricular activities must be made with safety as our defining factor. We initially were optimistic and had a timetable and protocols ready for the safe return to school including sports and extracurricular activities, but at this moment we made the tough decision to cancel until further notice to be safe.”

There hasn’t been very much good news for sports fans in 2020, and Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater wants to do something about it.

Last month, Prater and Denver Broncos punter Brandon McManus collaborated with Bud Light to win their respective city free beer if they were to nail a record breaking field goal. And Prater thinks he’s the man for the job, despite entering his 15th year in the NFL.

“I definitely think I could,” he said in a Zoom call with reporters. “I feel really good this year going into it. I feel like I’m in better shape. I feel better, my leg feels really fresh right now.
