Sparta, Westby Pause Football

By Adam Roberts – 9/24/2020

The most uncertain season of high school football in history continues this week.

Yesterday, the Sparta School District announced they would be moving from in-person classes to virtual learning after the Monroe County Health Department placed the county in the Red category for COVID-19 spread. Classes are going virtual on Monday, and athletics went virtual for the Spartans today. And about an hour ago, we learned that Westby football would follow suit, putting football on pause until October 7th.

This means both the Sparta-Tomah and Westby-Onalaska games scheduled for tomorrow night are no longer happening. Sources have reported that Tomah and Onalaska will now play each other in Tomah tomorrow evening.

We’ll continue to follow this story and provide updates as they become available.
