Schools opting out of fall sports

A list of twenty schools in New Mexico has made the decision to not compete in fall sports this semester including a handful of cross country powerhouses with Laguna Acoma, Navajo Prep, and Santa Fe Indian among others. A season that was reduced to the bare minimum to compete over a five-week span this spring has just seen a good portion of its competition reduced with state contenders that will not be toeing the line at the end of March.

New Mexico's biggest district at risk of not competing this Spring

Albuquerque schools may see themselves not competing for yet another spring if the board of education should decide to vote down a return to school with a hybrid model in place. As of now per the governor's office and the Public Education Department, no schools may compete if a district has not moved to this hybrid model. That would take away 13 schools' ability to compete in sports this spring when Albuquerque accounts for nearly half of schools among the class 5A. Last week Las Cruces Public Schools was approved after a move to increase in-person learning beginning February 22nd.
