Student-athletes and their coaches were disappointed with the delay until Monday a decision from the Illinois High School Association if they can resume team activities, including workouts.
Here’s the Illinois High School Association statement that was released around four this afternoon (Friday, May 29).
“The IHSA and Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) continue to work together to finalize Return to Play Guidelines focused on safely reuniting IHSA coaches and student-athletes within the guidelines of Phase Three of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan and the IDPH’s best practices. We refuse to compromise safety in this process, and anticipate being able to enact and educate our member schools on the Return to Play Guidelines by Monday, June 1.”
I will have more on this developing story in a future print edition of the Decatur Tribune.
