Governor Beshear says he will NOT overrule KHSAA decision on fall sports

Practices begin today, competitions in two weeks

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear announced during his daily press conference today that he will not overturn the KHSAA’s plan to move forward with fall sports.

There were some concerns from student-athletes, parents, coaches, and others that Beshear could nix KHSAA’s plan, which allows for practices with fall sports to begin today and competition to begin Sept. 7 for fall sports aside from football, which would begin Sept. 11.

“It’s not because I think it’s a good or wise decision, but if we’re going to defeat this virus, we need people other than me all over Kentucky taking responsibility to make good and wise decisions,” Beshear said in his press briefing. “… We can’t be making every decision on what’s best for folks out of the Governor’s office and it’s going to be incumbent on our superintendents, on coaches, on the different groups to make the wisest decisions that they can.”

Stay tuned as more details will be released in the coming weeks regarding attendance at sporting events and other details.
