The closure of schools on Bainbridge Island and across Washington state due to the spread of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has put the spring sports season in limbo.

Bainbridge school officials said Monday that all athletic practices, captain practices, games and contests are closed for Bainbridge High and all Metro League schools through April 24.

Coaches and athletes are not allowed to organize practice gatherings during this closure timeline, including weekends.
