The St. Mary’s Springs Academy Board of Directors has moved football, boys soccer, girls volleyball and cheerleading to the spring.

Legendary football coach Bob Hyland’s 50th season at Springs is delayed until 2021 when the alternate fall season begins in March. Hyland has participated in a traditional fall season every year since 1971, his first year with the private school.

“We have determined the move to spring provides the best opportunity for our student athletes to experience as close to a ‘normal’ season as possible,” the SMSA Board of Directors said in a statement. “We do not see this as cancelling these sports, but rather moving them for safety purposes in accordance with the FCHD (Fond du Lac County Health Department) and giving students a fighting chance to play a more traditional season.
