Wintry Weather Prompts KHSAA Schedule Changes
Adverse weather conditions have prompted the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to make changes to its football tournament schedule.
Here's the latest from the KHSAA:
After reviewing all of the available data/information and the most educated predictions, the KHSAA is making schedule adjustments for the rest of the weekend, and changes to a few of the event instructions to help with this weekend's weather situation.
Though there are dozens of factors that went into the schedule revisions, the first and foremost concerns have been competitor safety, and the travel needs of the entire school communities, especially the evenings when ice is highly anticipated.
All 12 schools through their senior administration, have been involved in the lengthy discussions about options and individual situations considered, ranging from those three miles from the facility, to many hours away. In the end, the teams have committed at this time to being able to accommodate the schedule changes. Each person desiring to attend the games must make the most prudent decision for their own circumstances as far as coming to the games, all of which will be streamed live on www.khsaa.org through the khsaa.tv channel.
