NJSIAA’s Maguire asks senior athletes to thank school staffs for fall season

With the fall 2020 high school sports season coming to a close, Colleen Maguire, the chief operating officer for the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association, has issued a Thanksgiving challenge of sorts to senior athletes: “Step up on behalf of your team and take the time to thank everyone involved.”

“Many people doubted whether high school sports could be successfully played during a pandemic, and we did it, so congratulations,” Maguire said in a nearly seven-minute video titled “Winter Update.”

In the video, released Nov. 19, Maguire also talked about the NJSIAA’s updated Return to Play plan for seasons 2 and 3 and the introduction of the newly created season 2A.
