The High School Hoops Season Now On Hold

(Undated) – Illinois didn’t play high school football this fall and now it seems the high school basketball season is in doubt. The Governor’s office and the Illinois Department of Public Health say basketball, wrestling, and hockey are all postponed until further notice. IDPH Director, Dr. Ngozi Ezike, says that while this will be a huge sacrifice, there appears to be no safe way to engage in these “high risk” sports.
The IHSA says they were notified of changes to IDPH’s stance on the winter sports seasons shortly before the Governor’s daily press briefing yesterday.
