HS Athletes Sacrifice by Following Bubble Example

Kaylee Cox (second from left) is taking every precaution in order to carry out her senior volleyball season.

Outside hitter Kaylee Cox knows first-hand about the
sacrifices that athletes must take in order to have a season amidst the
coronavirus pandemic. The Flower Mound HS (TX) senior has gotten an inside
look at what the professionals have done to successfully play without the coronavirus
pandemic putting a premature halt to the season.

Her sister Lauren Cox, former Baylor basketball
standout, is playing in the WNBA for the Indiana Fever. She’s currently in the bubble
created to maintain the athletes’ health and safety. The WNBA bubble, or the “Wubble”

club levels work to sort out their own sets of rules and regulations to combat
the coronavirus, we might be able to gain some perspective about what has been
successful elsewhere.
