It's happening and cannot be undone. Just like Tri-City Dust Devils games are being canceled, so are sporting events at schools because numerous players have tested positive for Covid-19.

The Richland Bombers freshman football team had to cancel practice on Tuesday. And, in Pasco, the High School girls' Junior Varsity soccer game against Walla Walla was canceled.
