In Monday’s COVID-19 update, Governor Andy Beshear stated that he would not overturn the KHSAA’s decision to continue the fall sports schedule a planned.
Even though he had concerns, he stated that he could not make every single decision.
He stated that the decision came down to each school district, players, coaches and parents.
“Let me start by saying we’re not going to overturn that decision, and it’s not because I think it’s a good decision or a wise decision,” the Governor said. “But if we’re going to defeat this virus, we need people other than me all over Kentucky taking responsibility to make good and wise decisions.”
So the KHSAA fall season will continue.
Monday, August 24 was the first day of practice.
Games are set to begin the season the week of September 7 for soccer, volleyball and cross country.
The high school football season will kickoff Friday, September 11.
