COVID forcing schedule changes
The Bay League athletics directors have decided that the best course of action to allow time to deal with potential positives and shut downs is to reduce the league play to just one round against each opponent. This will take place starting Friday, 1/14. We will play each Bay League opponent and allow for two additional games (if we do not have to shut down due to positive cases). However, if the team has to pause for positives, we will make up those games the last week we are allowed to play.
The below changes are reflected on each team schedules page:
Friday, 1/14 @ Santa Monica (V-3:15, JV-4:45, FS-3:15 (Belmar Park)
Tuesday, 1/18 @ home vs Redondo (V-3pm, JV-4:30, FS-3pm)
Friday, 1/21 @ Culver City (V-3:30, JV-5pm, FS-3:30)
Tuesday, 1/25 at home vs Peninsula (V-5:30, JV-3:45, FS-2:30) - Senior Recognition Night
Friday, 1/28 at home vs PV (V-3pm, JV-4:30, FS-3pm)
Then if we do not have to make up any of the games above:
Monday, 1/31 @home vs Santa Monica (V-3pm, JV-4:30, FS-3pm)
Wednesday, 2/2 @ Redondo (V-6pm, JV-4:30, FS-3pm)
These times remain tentative.
