AIA to complete 1A and 2A basketball tournaments with a modified schedule

February 22, 2019 by Seth Polansky, AZPreps365


Based on conference calls held with the Executive Board, staff and the 1A and 2A Conference schools, it was decided the tournaments will be held this weekend with some modifications.  As teams and spectators have taken extraordinary efforts to be present in Prescott, the schools in the tournament asked that we play as many games in Prescott as possible.

People have also indicated that, with the roads clearing, they felt safe to travel.  As a member association, we listen to our members and work towards the benefit of each member school.  We were able to keep all 1A games and all but one 2A semifinal in Prescott Valley.

The following schedule has been approved to complete the basketball tournaments. It was agreed upon by the schools, and we thank them for working with us to make this happen through these difficult circumstances.  

Highland and Greenway High Schools have graciously offered to host the remaining contests that could not be played at the Prescott venue.
