Low-risk high school sports start practice
CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) - Some school districts moved their fall sports seasons to the spring. For school districts that have not done that, practices for low-risk sports started Monday.
Cross country, girls tennis, swimming and golf hit the practice courses, courts, and pools Monday to start preparing for their modified seasons. It has been an off-season like no other for so many athletes and just because practices are starting doesn’t mean everything will go according to plan. Local coaches and athletes say they’re happy to be back.
Roger Skifstad, Chippewa Falls Cross Country Coach said, “We don’t take this for granted anymore, we used to just roll into practice and sort of go, and now we had a couple guys decide to kind of comeback and join because they missed it.”
Haley Mason, Chippewa Falls Cross Country runner said, “As of right now we are just trying to train like we are having a season right now and if it gets moved then I mean on the positive it is giving us more time to train.”
Logan Scott, Chippewa Falls Cross Country runner said, “Try to take it one step at a time like if it gets canceled at least we get one meet.”
Chi-Hi will have to adjust its fall schedule as some school districts, including Eau Claire, move fall sports to the spring.
