Kentucky high school fall sports are officially a go.

After the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control met last Thursday and approved a plan to move ahead with the fall high school sports seasons, Gov. Andy Beshear said Friday during his daily briefing that he was “surprised” by the decision and would have to evaluate it.

On Monday afternoon during his briefing, Beshear announced that he is “not going to overturn” the KHSAA’s decision, allowing the high school fall sports seasons to go on as scheduled.

“We’re not going to overturn that decision, and it’s not because I think it’s a good decision or a wise decision,” Beshear said. “I have concerns that starting with some of the most high contact sports that we risk a shortened season — and every other sport that’s going to follow.”

Official fall sports practices began Monday. Week 1 of the high school football season kicks off Friday, Sept. 11.
