MSHSL approves winter sports plan

Duluth East boys basketball coach Rhett McDonald had pointed toward the 2020-21 season as one where his team would excel.

With two Minnesota Duluth recruits on the roster, the Greyhounds were high on their chances this season after falling in the Section 7AAAA final last March.

The day after that loss, the Minnesota State High School League shut down the remaining winter sports season in the midst of the playoffs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The board’s rule states that teams can play three games in the last two weeks of the season to account for possible postponements.

“We were obviously hoping for more than 18 games,” East boys hockey coach Mike Randolph said of the hand teams were dealt.

Andrews is still hopeful the MSHSL, like it did with football and volleyball, will revise its original decision as more medical information becomes available and hold a state tournament.
