We are going to make up the postponed game from this past Saturday with Cloverdale on Tuesday, January 24, 2017. JV at 6:00, varsity to follow.
It is never easy to make a decision on weather and roads 6-7 hours prior to the contest. But that much time is needed to stop officials, game workers, bus drivers, parents, grandparents and fans before they make a trip. One of our officials from that game lives east of Indianapolis. As it turned out, the roads were a little slick, but maybe manageable … you just don’t know that many hours in advance how much more precipitation will fall. Frequently the concern is not how the roads will be at game time, but when the game is over and high school students are hitting the roads to go back home.
Sometimes our best guess is accurate, other times … not so much. Which opens the decision makers up to the 2nd guessers, but that is okay … When student safety is on the line, we error on the side of caution. I regret any inconvenience this schedule change has made for you or your family.
January 24th is a night that we did not have any home games or matches scheduled … I appreciate everyone’s flexibility. Put it on your calendar.
