According to OHSAA, all spring sports have been cancelled for the season. We are saddened for our student athletes, particularly our senior athletes who have lost the opportunity to compete and represent our community on the playing fields. Our sincerest thanks to all outgoing Bombers and wish them much success as they close their academic careers here. There is still an untold impact that this ongoing situation presents for Kenston, and even more specifically for our athletic programs, but Mr. Guarnieri will share information and provide direction as next steps are determined.
