Despite pandemic and COVID concerns, Eastmont starts summer sports programs


It was the first time since March that student-athletes had been able to practice sports on the campus of Eastmont High School. Prior to Monday’s start of the summer sports programs, athletic director Russ Waterman and the district put together a strategic plan to ensure safety protocols would be followed.

Waterman spoke via Zoom video conference with NCWLIFE sports director Eric Granstrom about the program, the protocols, and the attempt to plan for the fall sports season.
