PY sports cancelled

Rob Maeske

In light of the Penn Yan Central School District’s decision to close down until April 13, all spring sports have likewise been cancelled for the time being. There will be no practices during the district’s shut-down, and any scheduled scrimmages/games are cancelled.

Penn Yan Athletic Director Jon Mc Kerchar confirmed that the situation was identical in other districts across the state. He went on to say a schedule of modified length may be put in place later in the season, but due to the ever-changing news surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the future of the spring sports season was uncertain. 

The decision of when to reinstate sports and school activities in general will likely be up to N.Y. State officals at this juncture.
