According to athletic director Matt Ortman, BV will not host a Winter Sports night this year.
Winter Sports night was usually on the Monday or Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. It was an event for the winter sports teams, coaches and parents where all of the teams were introduced.
He said in the past few years, attendance has not been very high.
“We talked with the PTO and the coaches, and a lot of the teams weren’t quite set yet and they weren’t ready [at that point in the season],” Ortman said. “It wasn’t a great time to do it.”
Ortman said there may be an alternative to Winter Sports night.
“We are trying to come up with a different way to do a Winter Sports night, like a midnight madness for basketball. At this point, we don’t have anything set in stone.”
Basketball player sophomore Gabby Gunnerson said she doesn’t have a stance on not having Winter sports night.
“It is time consuming, but it is also nice to be recognized,” Gunnerson said. “I’m not sure how i feel about it.”
