Special report: West Essex athletes square off against COVID-19

For the 2020 fall season, sports at West Essex have been looking very different. There are restrictions on the number of people in the stands as well as limited tickets for players and their families. Some sports have even had their entire season cancelled hoping to have a make up season in the spring. We also have had to deal with school closure which makes individual players responsible for staying in shape at home. The Wessex Wire lays out the details about empty stadiums, tournament placing, how seniors feel about the season and more.
