Rest of YHS Boys Basketball Regular Season Canceled – Yuma Pioneer

The regular season for the Yuma High School boys’ basketball program has ended.
The school announced at noon today, Feb.26, that it had been informed of a positive COVID-19 case and that it was affecting the boys’ basketball teams.

The remainder of the regular season for the boys program has been canceled, starting with today’s home competitions with Peyton.
The girls’ team’s JV game has also been canceled for today. The only game will be the Yuma Peyton Girls Varsity Competition at 5:30 pm. At this point, the rest of the girls’ basketball program will continue as normal after today, the school said. The Indians will go to Wiggins tomorrow.
Yuma’s Boys College played enough games, 10, to qualify for the postseason. The 24-man state tournament begins on March 9th. The first eight seeds say goodbye with their first games on March 11th in the first round.
“We continue to find a safe way for our students / athletes to return to postseason play if possible,” the school said in a statement on Facebook.
After the start of the season 0: 3, the Indians won seven times in a row and are 7th in class 2A. They had some big games ahead of them, starting with today’s competition against third-placed Peyton. They were supposed to play at No. 13 Wiggins tomorrow, host No. 2 Wray in a huge game on March 5th that would likely have been for the LPAA regular season title, and then the regular season on March 6th in Class 3A Exit Platte Valley.
Yuma is currently number 7 on the Rating Percentage Index, Wray is number 1 and Peyton is number 2, while Wiggins is number 14
The Indians will now have no chance of improving their potential post-season sowing – although the main focus now is on keeping everyone healthy or getting well if they are sick.
While the university may still be able to play in March, that means the season is over for the JV and C teams, which affects about 15 students / athletes.
