Blue/White Series Leads Return of Athletic Events

Friday, October 16, 2020

A number of Mercersburg’s fall athletic teams have kicked off intrasquad competitions, marking the first head-to-head battles for any Blue Storm squads since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Teams have been holding workouts in accordance with the school’s COVID-19 mitigation protocols, and a couple of teams have even engaged rival schools in various forms of virtual competitions: the Storm football team is tackling a six-week virtual combine series against the three other Keystone State Football League squads, and the boys’ and girls’ cross country teams have competed in a virtual race against runners from Mid-Atlantic Prep League rivals Blair Academy and The Hill School. The October 16 introduction of the Blue/White Series, though, marks a return to traditional head-to-head competition, even as teams are divided in half to compete against one another.

A number of events are being broadcast either live or as a replay, and selected contests will feature play-by-play commentary from the Blue Storm Sports Network. There is no charge to view any of the broadcasts.
