ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt, a MoCo native who graduated from Sherwood High School, announced Monday that he’d miss the evening’s edition of SportsCenter after dealing with a “bit of a medical scare.”
Van Pelt said he suffered a supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), a rapid heartbeat that develops when the normal electrical impulses of the heart are disrupted.
Van Pelt was taken to Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, MD, and is now home resting.
Van Pelt was listed as the most famous person to graduate from Sherwood High School in a 2017 MoCoShow article.
Heart got a little out of whack, (SVT) which was pretty spooky, but fine now.
