“Much as I would like to, and have worked to, give our kids an opportunity to get back on the athletic fields for interscholastic play this fall, I do not feel that playing at an interscholastic level is the right decision for our student-athletes and/or that it is fair to all of the other league member schools to ask for Nantucket to remain on any of the 2020 fall game schedules,” Maury said in a statement announced via social media. ”The best decision regarding our NPS fall athletic teams is to pull all of our teams out of any interscholastic play for the 2020 fall season and focus on developing an on-island intramural-based approach for this year's NPS fall athletic teams.”
Nantucket’s decision came following the latest DPH update, which classified Nantucket as a “red” zone, with more than eight reported cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 population over the past two weeks. Schools in red zones can compete only at the intramural level, athletic director Chris Maury said, leading to an intramural Whalers season tentatively scheduled to begin Oct. 1.
