The District has decided to postpone this afternoon’s JV and Varsity boys basketball games between Edison Career and Technology High School and Rochester Early College International High School. We received information this afternoon about a potential security issue involving people expected to attend the game. Without sufficient time to investigate or implement additional security measures, the District decided to postpone the game in the interest of safety for student athletes, spectators and officials. Team members and all school families have been notified, and the game will be rescheduled in the near future.

As long as I can remember Section V tournaments have always been at the Blue Cross Arena/War Memorial. So the 2016-17 season will have somewhat of a different feel.
The finals this year will not be held at the Blue Cross Arena which hasn’t happened since the 1970’s according to Jack Purficato, chairman for Section V boys basketball.
This is something the players look forward to and work very hard to achieve – a shot at the title and a chance to play at the Blue Cross Arena. It’s an achievement that one wouldn’t understand unless you’ve played.
The feeling for many high school students who play and make it to the big house for the finals is indescribable. That walk out on to the court in front of thousands of people there to watch you and your team play is priceless and is part of the reason why student/athletes play. It is the reason students go to class and keep their grades up .
Some of the high school basketball players already face a multitude of challenges you could not fathom in school and at home so to take this away could leave them feeling a bit discouraged.
This leads to the question does the districts sports program have an alternative for the finals?
Just my thought… The tradition is broken and the students need something similar as far as the venue for sectionals to look forward to!
