Local high school athletes are continuing workouts and hoping for the best as uncertainties continue to loom over the fall season of high school sports, writes Phil Anastasia for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

“We can control what we can control – this is out of our hands,” said Cheltenham High senior running back and linebacker Sam Sykes.

“We understand the situation,” said La Salle College High School senior football lineman Ryan Wills. “It’s been really tough. There’s so much uncertainty, but we’re just trying to work as hard as we can.”

The Pennsylvania Departments of Health and Education issued a joint recommendation on August 6 that school-sponsored and youth sports should be put on hold at least until the end of the year.  However it emphasized that the guidance was not an order and that the decision should be made by individual school districts.

This was reiterated in a follow-up meeting between the PIAA and the Wolf administration.

Meanwhile, students are hoping for a quick and positive decision.

“We’re high school kids, and especially us seniors, this is something we’ve been dreaming about,” said Wills.
