After getting through the fall sports season pretty much uninterrupted by COVID issues, the virus has surged again statewide and has forced the postponement of several winter sports games over the past two weeks.
For Saugus, so far the issue has mostly affected basketball. The Sachem boys have not played since a 60-55 home win over Winthrop back on Dec. 20. Their next game at Peabody just two days later was postponed due to COVID protocol issues. The boys have not seen action since.
The Saugus girls have also seen their last few games called off. They last competed when they hosted Peabody back on Dec. 22, which ended in a loss.
So far, the Saugus hockey and wrestling teams had not been impacted until Saturday’s hockey tilt at Lynn was postponed as well as Wednesday’s wrestling meet at Beverly.
The boys’ basketball team is off to a strong 3-0 start and hopes to get back on the court next Tuesday at Beverly. As well, the girls, who currently stand at 1-3, are hoping to resume with a home game next Tuesday against the Big Blue.
