For every sports team, not just at Fossil Ridge High School, seasons have been less than ideal. All kinds of restrictions, from being without spectators to reduced numbers of practices have been weighing heavily on teams. Despite this, student athletes are doing everything they can to safely continue to play sports.
Now, more than ever, exercise is vital. According to Nuvance Health, “Exercise is especially important now because it can reduce stress, prevent weight gain, boost the immune system, and improve sleep.”
In the midst of a pandemic, Fossil’s Varsity Dance Team has done their best to navigate having some type of season. Although full of uncertainty, they have found ways to make the most of the situation. The team plans on practicing as long as it is safe to continue to get exercise, have a sense of community, and get a break from stress.
Three members of the Varsity Dance Team are a part of Etched in Stone’s staff, and they have worked together to explain what it is like to have high school sports as COVID-19 rages on.
