QUEENSBURY - One by one, school districts around the region have been giving the green light to resume high-risk sports. Warren County is no exception.

Positivity rates hovered around 3% in the county on Monday.

It came down to one vote during the Queensbury Union Free School District Board of Education meeting. 

The push to resume sports struck out.

Just before 11 a.m. Tuesday, students, coaches, and parents assembled outside the high school to sound off against the 5 to 4 vote not to resume high-risk team sports.

Hear their frustrations, and what the superintendent is saying about whether he thinks there could be any possible changes by watching the video of Jerry Gretzinger's story.
