By Ray Hamill — Will they or won’t they be allowed to play, that’s the question facing the Eureka Loggers this week, as the Eureka City Schools District board gets set to meet on Thursday night.
The board is scheduled to discuss exactly that, and whether the student athletes at the high school can begin some type of restricted conditioning/practice programs like most of the rest of the H-DNL.
Last week the league got the go-ahead for its alternative 2020/21 calendar from the North Coast Section, with competition scheduled to begin in December.
However, with the Eureka City Schools District voting last month to continue distance learning until late January at least, it remains to be seen if the Loggers will be allowed to compete in sports before that.
The board will discuss the issue at this week’s meeting.
The league, of course, must also get the go-ahead from county health officials before any competition will be given the green light.
The sports affected the most by any potential decision this week are cross country and basketball, which are scheduled to be the first two sports seasons running through December and January.
