By Ray Hamill — Arcata High will follow in the footsteps of some of the other H-DNL schools and is expected to begin conditioning for its student athletes soon, the first sports activity for the Tigers since the March shutdown.

According to new Arcata athletic director Tahnia Campbell, the school is currently working with the district to allow conditioning sessions while adhering to COVID-19 protocols.

“We are currently working on scheduling facilities, screening students and all the COVID safety protocol recommended by our district, league, county and state,” Campbell told Humboldt Sports.

Construction is currently ongoing at the Arcata sports fields complex — with a new facility expected to be completed sometime in November — which limits where the Tigers can hold outdoor conditioning sessions.

McKinleyville High, which is in the same school district, was given the go-ahead earlier this week to begin conditioning sessions outdoors next week.

Both Fortuna and Ferndale high schools also currently have some type of conditioning/practice ongoing for their student athletes.
