Dragons to continue despite virus spike
CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Despite the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, all Clintondale winter athletics will continue with practices and games as scheduled this week.
High school and middle school coaches have been instructed to contact their student-athletes to resume practices and game competition.
Boys and girls varsity bowling open their seasons when they face Warren Woods-Tower Tuesday at Rose Bowl Lanes in Roseville. The girls’ varsity basketball team is also in action this week with home tilts against Warren Mott on Tuesday and Madison Heights Madison on Thursday. All three boys’ hoops teams will travel to Port Huron on Friday.
The middle school boys’ seventh- and eighth-grade teams will host Chatterton and Eastpointe on Tuesday and Friday, respectively.
Dragons' athletics director Bob Walmsley will continue close consultation with the Macomb Area Conference and the Clintondale administration to ensure students can compete and fans can cheer safely.
Michigan High School Athletic Association member schools must continue to follow orders established by local county health departments. Given there are no current statewide orders from MDHHS regarding face masks, crowd limitations or testing, schools will continue to follow local county health department orders as has been done since August 2021. The MHSAA plan and approach for the start of winter sports remains unchanged from the past fall season.
