PARADISE, Calif. -- The California Interscholastic Federation made the decision to permanently halt the 2020 spring season earlier this month due to the coronavirus. 

"We just started, we were hitting really fast times on the intervals, really looking forward to it, it was really looking good," said Paradise High senior Patrick Roehling. 

The CIF is set to reconvene in April to discuss the spring season. 

"[I was] definitely banking on the season, especially with that [800 meter] school record. If I was to hit that which is like 1:52.6 seconds or something. Last season I got 1:58, but I’ve been training all winter and that would definitely get me in a good position for college," said Roehling. 

All schools, campuses and most tracks are closed due to Governor Gavin Newsom's Stay-In-Place order, but Patrick says he does his best to keep running. 

The senior has not been able to work with his coach or do interval workouts for five days. 

“It really sucks. But im trying to make due with it.”

These circumstances dropped his time by three seconds in the 400m. 

"I know if I stop training there is always the option that the season might open up again and then there’s going to be that one guy that’s been training the whole time and I'm just not going to be able to get him."
