Varsity athletes in Wicomico County Public Schools will wear school-branded Under Armour uniforms under a deal being touted as one of the first of its kind in the nation.

Students will start wearing Under Armour gear this fall. School-branded Under Armour items will be sold at the schools as well, with a portion of sales going to athletic programs.

Cathy Townsend, assistant superintendent for administrative services, told The Dispatch the schools are saving money by signing a system-wide contract.
