TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Fall sports in Kansas will go on as planned, the Kansas State High School Activities Association voted Tuesday.

The board knocked down a proposal to push back high school football games until after Sept. 8 with a 5-4 vote.

The Sept. 8 start date also would have applied to volleyball, boys soccer, and gymnastics. The proposal also would have limited the football season to eight games.

Competitions will all go on according to the KSHSAA handbook.

Safety guidelines approved by the executive board last week will still be in place.
