The youth/high school sports mask debate is complete bunk when you look at hockey and basketball have to wear a mask at all times but wrestling only when they walk in and out of the building for practice and while not on the mat competing at a dual meet. Why is that? Why the two rules? And the MDH “choking hazard” explanation doesn’t count. Like my son told me, “there isn’t a second go by in a wrestling match where someone isn’t putting their hands in your face or sliding your face across the mat”, so a mask wouldn’t have a chance to stay in place during practice or a match.
