Triad Podcast Network Features Updates on Triad High School Sports

In early August, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association unveiled its plans for a modified sports schedule because of Covid-related concerns for the 20-21 academic calendar. NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker joined Kyle Schassburger on Triad Sports 1-on-1 to detail those modifications. This includes moving high school football to the fall and delaying the start of all activities until November 4th. Tucker provides clarity on the influences behind crafting a solution for a safe return to play for student-athletes across public North Carolina high schools, including contingencies at play, and why settle on the day after Election Day for the official start of high school athletics. Plus, restrictions and protocols. Be sure to listen to the most recent episode from Triad Sports 1-on-1 – part of the Triad Podcast Network – for the latest on the delay of high school sports in the triad and across the state.
