WHS Sports Cancellation

Winnebago Athletes, Families, and Fans- 

With the recent announcement made from the IHSA regarding the cancellation of state series competitions for spring sports throughout Illinois, as well as the current suspension of summer contact dates for all sports, Winnebago High School is officially ending our spring sport seasons.  This decision was not made lightly and is one that is difficult for our student-athletes, coaches, parents, athletic department, and fans.  We all share the disappointment of a canceled season, but we make this decision with the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and fans in mind.  Given the current COVID-19 parameters in our state (school building closings through the end of the year, stay at home orders from the governor, and social distancing requirements for all) this is the decision that we must make in order to be safe, healthy, and in compliance.  

Winnebago High School will be finalizing and sharing plans regarding uniform and equipment turn in, distribution of personal items left in lockers, spring sport fee reimbursement, etc.
