Boys Basketball

With COVID restrictions being put place in December of 202o until January 4, 2021, sports were put on hold. Finally, they were lifted and the boys are able to play basketball again.  In efforts to let the participation of cheerleaders and families, the school has to hold the events by adhering the CDC guidelines and protocols. There will be social distancing of 6 feet and seating areas will be marked to help do so. If you are able to attend the game, with one of the tickets from an athlete, you will be required to wear face coverings the entire time you are in the building. Temperatures will also be taken at the entrance and a sensitization station will be there as well. While entering the gym going into the doors closest to the entrance, you will be required to exit the gym using the opposite doors on the fair side of the gym.

The first boys basketball game was held at Beaver Falls on Friday, January 8, 2021. Unfortunately they lost with a score of 62-33. On Tuesday, January 12, their first home game was against Ellwood. Cheerleaders will be able to attend the home games this year to support our guys play. This game was a tough one for our guys, Ellwood leaving the game with 71-44 them. With one senior one the team, Jackson Miller, it must have been upsetting for him, along with the rest of the team as well.

The next game will be held on Friday, January 15 at Riverside High School. The cheerleaders will not be participating in the game, due to them not being able to cheer at away games. In a hopeful manner, everyone in the District wishes them a good game and hoping they come home with their first win of the season.
