SAW Petition Nears 25,000 Signatures

The group of mostly high school athletes want Governor Inslee and the WIAA to reconsider a move to push fall sports to the spring. Cole Norah is a standout football player at Mount Si high school in Snoqualmie who started the petition because he and many others want to play football now, not in April.

As of this afternoon, 24,802 people have signed the petition at Change dot org to try to sway the minds of administrators in Washington. In addition, the student athletes will rally on the capitol steps in Olympia Thursday at 4 o’clock to try to push their point.

The WIAA moved fall sports to the spring out of concern for the coronavirus pandemic. Many seniors believe the move will hurt their chances of moving on to the collegiate level.
