Current Athletic Updates

Hello everyone,

Tonight is the first contest for Season 4 sports, which are traditional winter sports (Basketball, Wrestling and Swimming).  Due to continued restrictions around indoor athletics, indoor contests will be relegated to a select few family members of athletes from both teams and closed to the general public.

We will be streaming all of our JV and Varsity basketball games on the NFHS Pixellot system.  The link to our games will be at our NFHS webpage:

Thank you

Good morning Pendleton community,

With the new guidance that came out yesterday evening from the Oregon Health Authority, Pendleton High School will now be allowing fans to our outdoor sporting events (Soccer, Football, Cross Country) at 15% capacity of our outdoor venues.  On Saturday at the Rodeo Grounds, we play Hood River Valley at 1:00 pm.  Due to the size of Round-up stadium, we can bring in a substantial number of people.  Admission for the game will be $6 for adults and $4 for students to the general public.  Masks and social distancing are REQUIRED throughout the contest for everyone inside the stadium during the contest.  There will be no concessions yet.  We encourage people to bring their own water, hand sanitizer and any other personal effects for a football game.  We are getting closer to normal each week.  This is a good step forward.  GO BUCKS!

Athletes, parents and community,

We are less than a week away from our first contests of the ’20-’21 school year.  As excited as we are to start watching our students compete again, there are still many protocols that need to be followed based on OHA and OSAA requirements.  Here are a few items to consider as our seasons begin.

  • Currently we have very strict limitations on who can be in a venue for any athletic contests. For Season 2 sports (Football, soccer, volleyball and cross country), no spectators will be allowed into an event.  We do have the Pixellot camera system in Warburg Court, which will allow us to live stream contests from there.  For soccer and football, we are working on a platform to livestream events.  More information about livestreaming will be available next week.
  • Our league is comprised of six schools from five different counties. Most of the schools in the IMC are not allowing fans, however based on individual county metrics, opportunities may come up to attend contests in other counties.  If those opportunities arise, that will be communicated to those specific programs and parents ahead of time.
  • When our student athletes are traveling on the bus to various events, students will only be sitting one person per seat and masks will be mandated the entire trip. When our athletes get on a bus, they will be required to be pre-screened before they leave.  Anyone showing COVID symptoms will not be allowed to attend the event.

Specific communications involving each sport will be communicated through the sports coaching staff.  If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 541-966-3805.

Thank you,

Mike Somnis

Athletics Information

Athletics plays an important part of student life at PHS, which is why we offer 18 different programs for students to be involved in.  We believe that athletics compliments many of the ideas being taught in classes, as well as teaches students many other valuable assets to round out their high school education.

Multiple studies have shown that student-athletes attend school more regularly and have better grades than non-athletes, which is why we encourage all students to find a team they can join.

If you don’t find the information you need here about PHS athletics, please call:
