'Fall' sports practices get underway at General Brown

DEXTER, N.Y. (WWNY) - Practice has begun for the Fall 2 schedule -- high school sports that did not take place in the fall moved to the spring season.

It looks like a normal day at General Brown with the soccer team on the field practicing, until you look at the calendar and realize this fall sport is being held in the spring because of COVID-19.

Jose Bernier was running a practice for coach Phil Jenner, who had a prior commitment.

Meanwhile, coach Will Covey ushering in another fall sport that is being played this spring: girls’ tennis.

You can hear from both coaches in the video as they talk about how happy they are to be preparing for a season, no matter what time of year it is.
