Will the PG&E power outages impact high school sports? It's up to the schools

Individual schools will decide whether to reschedule Friday night's football games as power remains out in multiple districts.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, Calif. — While school was back in session for most districts on Friday, the PG&E power outages that continue to leave hundreds of thousands of people without power and shuttered schools this week could impact the high school football schedule. 

Will DeBoard, the assistant commissioner for the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Office, said the decision about whether or not to reschedule games comes from the schools themselves. 

"We haven't really heard too much in the sense that we let our schools work it out own their own," he said. 

At this point, ABC10 has only seen the outages impact one contest. A game originally slated for Friday night between Summerville Union High School and Argonaut High School has been moved to Saturday afternoon due to the outages, according to a Facebook post.

Other schools appear to be continuing Friday night's games as planned, including Ponderosa High School in the El Dorado Union High School District, which has homecoming this week. 

DeBoard recommended checking MaxPreps.com for the latest schedules, and to determine if anything has changed.
