Sunday Sitdown: With a decision looming, PIAA talks fall high school sports

PIAA expects fall season to start

It appears high school sports in Pennsylvania will get the green light.     Governor Wolf and his staff made his position clear and his recommendation to cancel sports until January 1st is unchanged.  At a press conference on Thursday, he said once again the decision to move forward is not his but rather it’s up to the PIAA and individual school districts if they want to play high school sports.

Moments after their phone meeting with two members of the Governor's staff on Friday afternoon, the PIAA's Executive Director Dr. Bob Lombardi and Associate Executive Director Melissa Mertz  were on a zoom call with FOX43's Todd Sadowski and Andrew Kalista.
