Blessed Sacrament Huguenot’s conference to open with winter sports, followed by fall and spring athletic seasons
The Virginia Colonial Conference private school league has decided not to flip the athletic seasons, and will instead proceed with a condensed three-season model similar to that of the Virginia High School League, Blessed Sacrament Huguenot athletic director James Poore said last Wednesday.
The VCC, which includes BSH in Powhatan County, will conduct the winter sports season (boys and girls basketball and swimming) from Nov. 18 to Jan. 30, the fall season (football, cheer and volleyball) from Feb. 1 to March 27 and the spring season (baseball, softball, co-ed soccer and tennis) from March 29 to May 22. First regular-season game play dates are slated for Dec. 8 for winter, Feb. 16 for fall sports and April 13 for spring.
The teams are currently looking at conference-only play.
The other option that was considered was flipping spring sports to the fall and fall sports to the spring, but instead, the seasons, if they move forward, will parallel those of the VHSL, which is slated to feature winter sports from Dec. 7 to Feb. 20 (first play date in Dec. 21), fall sports Feb. 15 to May 1 (March 1) and spring sports April 12 to June 26 (April 26).
