CORNING, Calif. -- The Corning Cardinals are back on the court and field in hopes of a fall start.
Corning High's athletic director John Studer says Tehama County approved the Cardinals practice plan and as of now, the Cardinals are preparing to start their season in September.
"I was really excited when I heard there would be more of a possibility of playing, just because I love playing sports, it’s part of my life, and it just gives me another season to play," said senior volleyball player Mayze Menefee.
Studer says the Cardinals are also anticipating a move to January because of the leagues they play in. For example, their opponent may not have county approval.
Multi-sport players like Mayze and Sanaya Shrader hope to play in the fall because they also play sports in the winter and spring.
"It’d be a really hard decision because I would have to say goodbye to the two other sports that I love to do," said Shrader. But, I would have to go with the sport that I would play in college, which is basketball."
Studer says Corning's football team is holding modified practices and field hockey is doing workouts and open gyms.
"I'm super thankful and grateful, I can’t even express how grateful I am, especially because a lot of people aren’t able to get together to practice," said Shrader.
Shrader and Menefee received All-League honors in their sports and hold a 3.8 G.P.A. in the classroom. They say they worked hard for a senior season and to play at the next level.
