Re: WIAA Fall Guidelines Mentions Wrestling as High Risk.
As the name says Iím a current ref, and I happen to work at a biotech that has a covid pcr test and is working on an antibody test that will hopefully be out this fall. My concern for wrestling is that most of our refs ages skew closer to mid 40ís. We all know there is a shortage of refs for all sports and with COVID-19 it May cause some refs to bow out. That could put a serious damper on high school sports even when they do start. On a personal note as someone whose about to turn 50, and is married this is something Iím debating. I chose to ref because work doesnít allow me to coach and the sport of wrestling has given me so much and I miss the interaction with the kids, fans and even the coaches.
