CHICO, Calif. -- The Eastern Athletic League is making plans for a possible season this fall. These plans include boys and girls tennis and other non-contact sports.

“I’m super nervous because I don’t know how I am going to be looked at or how I am going to be recognized,” said Pleasant Valley High senior Mallory Moore. “I think it’s crucial to play another season.”

Moore picked up the rack last year and fell in love and hopes her first season will not be her last. She want to play in college.

“Ever since I was little, I always wanted to play my senior year. It’s a big thing and to not have that would be really sad, especially for me and my friends,” said Mallory.

Muti-sport athlete Christiane Carlisle echoes those same sentiments. She says if tennis were to be pushed back to spring, she will make the tough decision.

“I think in the end, I would choose basketball, but I wouldn’t stop playing tennis,” said Carlisle.

For senior Harnoor Mann, the ball hasn’t been in his court. Earlier this year, his junior season was canceled due to COVID-19.

“It’s very important. Obviously I don’t know how that will play out with the COVID situation, but I am definitely hoping we can have a senior season,” said Mann.

As of now, it is unknown whether a boys’ tennis season will be played in the spring or pushed forward to this fall.

Either way, the 4.8 G.P.A student-athlete hopes his final season will set him up for college.

“Possibly, it depends on what schools I go to. A lot of school are Division I, so those are pretty intense programs, so if not, I will just play for the club team,” said Mann.

Like these senior student-athletes, others are doing the best they can to plan for an unknown future in athletics.

According to the P.V. tennis coach, the EAL will discuss combining both girls’ and boys’ tennis for the fall as well as the nets they may face.

Scott Feingold says most high schools only have four courts and four out of six coaches, coach both teams. These are some of the issues they will talk about.

The EAL will hold a meeting on the future of non-contact sports Thursday afterno
