Somebody help me out here. Exactly who decides how many spectators, if any, are allowed to attend VHSL events? Our football team had their first game tonight and they were allowed to have a limited number of spectators (not sure how many) but at our state track meet next week, no spectators are allowed, which is very disappointing to our parents who have been able to attend, for a cost, meets in Va beach and allowed to stand outside of the gates to watch polar bear meets. Who makes the call here? Is it the venue? Either way it is both disappointing and frustrating to see the VHSL limit our meets to one gender only then 12 participants per event and not allow some parents to watch their kids perform. Fifteen events with twelve participants and many kids doing multiple events may result in approx 100 parents (one per child) which any of our state meet venues could easily handle the social distancing. Why can parents attend football games but not track meets?
