September 13, 2020: Slightly over 70 parents and their student athletes whose sports have been shut down by New York State in Westchester and Long Island, held a rally at the County Center this morning. Their message was that allowing soccer, field hockey, and tennis to play starting in October, but disallowing football and volleyball and competitive cheerleading,was unfair and called for Governor Cuomo and the Sections to “Let Them Play.”
