UPDATE: Glendora coach Mark Pasquarella said as of now, Thursday’s game at Chino High School is still on, but they will make a final determination on Thursday at Noon. If the game can’t be played at Chino because of poor air quality, he said the schools have tentatively agreed to move the game to Downey High School. Also, Baldwin Park coach James Heggins said they’re in the same situation. They’re scheduled to play Pomona at Ganesha on Thursday. A final decision will be made on Thursday, but no alternate site has been selected at this point. As soon as I have new information, I’ll pass it along.
Fire Update: We have not been informed of any Thursday or Friday night football games being canceled because of poor air quality stemming from the fires throughout the Southland. Several High School football teams were forced to cancel practice on Tuesday, and more may continue today. We will keep you posted.
If there are cancellations, leagues have two options on how to handle it because CIF will not extend the season.
The 2003 fires in Corona and Riverside forced the postponement of several league games. As a result, several leagues opted to use the final week of the regular season to play on Monday and Friday to get the games in. Some leagues decided not to reschedule, and played a shortened league season.
“The plan is to let the leagues and the schools decide what’s best for them,” said CIF-SS spokesperson Thom Simmons. “If they can’t play their full compliment of games, that’s their decision.”
Question: How would you decide it?
