In a recent survey of Canary readers, we asked if they believe the PIAA should cancel Fall high school sports in 2020 on account of the pandemic.

Not surprising with this group, 60% answered “No” that they believe Fall sports should carry on as scheduled.

And the PIAA agreed last week. At its most recent board meeting, the PIAA board of directors voted 30-2 to continue with Fall sports as scheduled.

Some allowances were made for changes at the local level. And, of course, no fans will be permitted in the stands, which is really drawing the ire of many parents with student-athletes participating in sports. But for the most part, Fall sports will carry on starting in August.

  • Yes = 31%
  • I don’t know = 9%
