On 4/30/2021 I sent the following email to the NHIAA, the Pembroke Academy administration and school board, and some media contacts.
I encourage you to copy it to your local school administration and boards as well.
Subject: Are You Going to Wait Until a New Hampshire Athlete Collapses at the Finish Line ?
In case you weren’t aware, in the last few weeks two high school runners, one in New Mexico
and one in Oregon
, who were racing with masks on collapsed at the finish lines of their races. These were top athletes (one was at a State Championship and one near a school record). One of the athletes was hospitalized.
It’s time for New Hampshire schools to do the same.
