HARDIN — In Hardin, school district administrators walked back a two-week school sports season "interruption", allowing high school volleyball, cross country and golf to resume practice on Tuesday while keeping the football and cheerleading temporary season suspension.

According to a release from the Hardin school district, middle school volleyball, cross country and golf practice will resume on Wednesday.

Football and cheerleading will be temporarily suspended until Sept. 11, two weeks after multiple student COVID-19 cases were found in the Hardin school district on Saturday.

Administrators had previously included all middle and high school sports in the two-week suspension.

The decision to keep football and cheerleading suspended for two weeks was made by Hardin Superintendent Eldon Johnson, the Hardin Activities Office and school nurse, according to the release.

Athletes and parents are asked to contact their child's coaches for specific information about practice times.
