There will be high school sports next year … probably.

The CIF-SS today (Monday) announced its plans for the 2020-21 academic and athletic year, pushing fall sports mostly into the winter, with some overlapping into the spring.

All this, of course, depends on the coronavirus situation and whether schools will actually be open for in-person instruction.
