PIAA Sitting on the Fence Over Fall High School Sports
On Friday, the PIAA issued a highly-anticipated statement on Fall high school sports in 2020.
The statement comes a day after Governor Tom Wolf said he strongly recommends they not be held until Jan. 1, 2021.
So, the PIAA decided to hold an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss his recommendations. And the result of it was a bit wishy-washy.
Apart from putting a 2-week pause on mandatory pre-season activities, the PIAA didn’t say much. And they wished for the impossible … having a meeting with Wolf to discuss what it could do besides follow his recommendations.
This is obviously something our Schuylkill County Dept. of Memes Commissioner couldn’t let go. He thinks the PIAA statement today is a whole lot of bluster that doesn’t say too much of anything substantive.
