Fall/Winter Sports Update

Laguna’s “Fall-Winter” high school teams continue to train for the planned season start next month but CIF also continues to caution that COVID fears may still shut down the winter season. California is only one of six states that prohibited fall sports and still has not given any idea if a winter season will be allowed.
