Last week the California Department of Public Health officially announced that outdoor sports can resume based off of the colored Cover-tracking tiers in each county.

At San Clemente this week and through the weekend both girls and boys tennis, golf, and cross country resumed competition. Everyone is super happy to be back to playing their sports.

“I am super stoked to be back out on the golf course again,” junior golfer Bane Corbett said. “It feels great to be back out there competing with my teammates again.” The golf team takes on Dana Hills on Thursday and Monday at the SC municipal course and the San Juan Hills Golf Club. 

Another event going on this week is the Cross Country meet on Saturday against El Toro. “It is great to be back racing,” junior runner Diego Crawford said. “We finally have something to actually work towards and accomplish.”

Throughout the week there are various tennis matches against both Corona del Mar and Trabuco Hills.

Ultimately everyone just wants to play. It is a good thing for people to get back out and be active in their sports, which the Let Them Play movement in south Orange Country has been exclaiming for quite some time now. Finally, we see some sort of progress towards things going back to normal. Hopefully, the rest of the sports will follow soon.
