ROCKY POINT, NC (WWAY)–The 2020-2021 high school sports season is still up in the air with the unknown of covid-19, but athletes across the Cape Fear are beginning to prepare should games resume to normal this fall.
In Pender County, schools like Heide Trask High School began workouts Tuesday on campus. The Titans are requiring student-athletes to go through a coronavirus prevention test. Each athlete must have their temperature checked as well as answer illness related questions before being allowed to join in on the individual workouts.
The school says while it is going to be a learning process for everyone, they were pleased with how things went on day one of workouts.
“Well it’s going to be a process and that showed,”says Heide Trask football coach Brandon Proctor. “I think today was a good way to see how long it’s going to take for the check in process. I think we did a great job.”
The North Carolina High School Athletic Association will hold a press conference on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. to address high school sports headed into the fall. You can check back to our website for the latest from the NCHSAA.
