(10-28-20) Yesterday Illinois Governor JB Pritzker shocked the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) school officials and basketball coaches. The IDPH raised basketball to being a high-risk sport.
Pritzker and the IDPH did not allow football, volleyball or soccer competition to take place this fall, so the IHSA moved those sports to the spring. While neighboring states are currently in post-season competition for those same sports. Now basketball is on the shelf…for how long nobody knows.
Don’t be surprised if Pritzker and the IGPH are not done with postponing or cancelling more winter sports.
