Syracuse, N.Y. – For the past few weeks, the sports grounds at central New York high school have remained calm and dark during the suspension of sports due to the coronavirus.
But some Section III schools have turned on the lights of hope that these fields will soon be full of training and games.
Last week, Central Valley and Vernon-Vernona-Sherrill joined a trend that started in Colorado and sweeps across the country by briefly turning on the stadium lights.
V-V-S turned the tribute into a production, flashing its lights in a paparazzi way.
“I thought it was a great idea,” said Randy Thomas, sporting director for V-V-S. “We miss everyone at school. We realize that it is a difficult time right now for everyone in the world. We just wanted to show our students that V-V-S thinks of them, whether they are in the building or not. “
Note: does your Section III school join these lights as a tribute? Send a photo and / or video to the email address listed below and it can be included in an updated story.
