The IESA Bowling has been cancelled. This is the letter we received from them.
I hope this email finds all of you healthy and safe. At the IESA, we have truly missed communicating with our member schools and look forward to when we can again gather and celebrate our students. Until then, I wanted to take a moment to update all of you on the status of the IESA Bowling State Series. As you all know, the COVID-19 situation is extremely fluid. Our Federal, State and Local agencies have put aggressive measures in place to help slow the spread of the virus.
Earlier this week, those policies and guidelines continued to evolve as both Federal and State leaders extended the CDC social distancing recommendations through April 30. This will make it extremely difficult if not impossible for schools to practice at a local bowling center to prepare for the sectionals and the state tournaments. Given that our sectional tournaments were scheduled to be held on April 18 and the state tournament April 24-25 and that schools are closed through April 30, there is no way a state series can be conducted this year. As a result, the IESA Board of Directors has decided that the 2020 IESA Bowling State Series is cancelled.
The health and welfare of our membership, students and fellow citizens is our primary concern in all decisions we are making during these uncharted times. Please know that we are extremely disappointed that our students are not able to participate in this event but look forward to their return to the classroom and a sense of normalcy.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Best wishes and stay safe!
