"Todays decision by the PIAA Board of Directors was difficult for everyone. Their thoughts remain on the thousands of student athletes, coaches, officials, and family members affected by this decision." said PIAA Executive Director Dr. Lombardi. "However, the Board's position reflects a steadfast priority of keeping our student athletes, officials, and member schools staffs and their communities safe, while following the guidelines provided by the Governor, the Department of Health and the Department of Education.

This is difficult news for sure, and there is a great disappointment for all of our students, but we also recognize that the seniors do not have another opportunity to live out their HS senior experience. To those seniors, thank you. We are all proud of you, and you are an amazing group that made LM Proud.
