When the KHSAA Board of Control adjourned its special meeting on Thursday, a start of the winter season was approved and an end date for the high school basketball season.
KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett assured all watching, including the board, that there would be a basketball season this year.
“We will be able to play, it just might look different,” he said.
After it was all said and done, a start time for winter sports was confirmed and a Sweet Sixteen tournament date was set.
The start of the winter sports season that was approved at the previous session — with the start of practice beginning on Dec. 14 and competition beginning on Jan. 4 — was approved with a 12-5 vote on Thursday.
Basketball, wrestling and swimming teams will get to work starting Monday and will have three weeks to prepare for action. The board approved an option to begin the KHSAA Sweet Sixteen tournaments on March 29, ending on April 8. That vote passed 14-3.
