WVSSAC announces 2020 high school football champions after playoffs canceled

The West Virginia Secondary Schools Athletic Commission confirmed the 2020 “Super Six” high school football championships will not be played after Saturday’s COVID-19 map forced cancelations in all three divisions.

“As a result of the November 28, 2020 Saturday WVDE education map, the W.Va. Super Six high school football championships will not be played,” WVSSAC Executive Director Bernie Dolan said in a press release.

The 2020 West Virginia high school football championship winners are:

  • A – St. Marys
  • AA – Fairmont Senior
  • AAA – South Charleston

“We have been consistent in following the rules as per the WVDE Saturday map for football as well as for all other fall sport championship events,” Dolan said. “We held an emergency board meeting this evening with our Board of Directors to discuss the situation and the vote was unanimous to stay consistent in our decision making.”

“It is an unfortunate situation for everyone, but we knew going into the playoffs that this could be a possibility. We were hoping that the map would allow the championship games to be held, but it did not turn out that way.

“We congratulate the winners. It has been an emotional journey for everyone involved. We wish there could have been championship games, but the map did not allow games to be played. We look forward to the day that all of our student athletes will have the opportunity to return to both school and athletics in a safe environment.”

Twenty-two counties are forced to close schools for the upcoming week due to a continued rise in COVID-19 cases across the state.
