The Pittsburgh City League will attempt to play this fall, as the Pittsburgh Public Schools board voted unanimously to allow athletes to return to practices and competition within the COVID-19 mitigation guidelines provided by the PIAA.
At least two local districts have decided not to go forward with their fall sports schedules, even though the state’s governing body for high school athletics has approved the 2020 season, but the city schools will not be one of them, even after athletic director Karen Arnold was one of just five dissenting votes for the PIAA decision to move ahead.
The move came after several high-profile City League players advocated to play their season, including Brashear sophomore Ta’Mere Robinson.

It’s not clear when the City League teams will be able to start playing. WPIAL teams began heat acclimatization on Monday. The first date teams can play is Sept. 11.
