Section VI Moving Forward With Fall Sports
It looks like there will be some Fall high school sports happening this year after all.
Just days after Buffalo Public School announced that they would be cancelling Fall high school sports, Section VI officials announced that low and moderate risk sports will be played with a start day of next Monday.
Section VI covers a majority of Western New York high schools from Hamburg to Starpoint.
In a letter posted on their website, officials with Section VI said that a majority of school wanted sports to take place this Fall.
The Athletic Council of Section VI today accepted the results of the formal post-card ballot that went out to their membership, and will move forward with fall sports. Over 70 districts submitted votes through the ballot process with 67 pledging their support for a September 21 start date.
Sports that will be allowed to start on Monday include cross country, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, soccer, girls swimming and girls tennis.
