Kearney High School is hosting a C2-5 Girls Basketball District Final at 5:30 p.m. between Burwell(19-5) and Cambridge(19-5). The winner advances to the Girls State Tournament next week in Lincoln.
The Kearney High Boys(16-6) are hosting Lincoln Southeast(4-19) at 8:00 p.m. in the A-4 District Semifinal with the winner advancing to Monday night's District Final Game. As you know, the expected weather conditions moved this game from Saturday night to tonight.
As a result of the rescheduled games, the Nebraska Schools Activities Association does require the clearing of the facility anytime there are different district events occurring in the same facility. With that being said, at the conclusion of tonight's Burwell vs. Cambridge District Final, we will be clearing the facility first before allowing Kearney and Lincoln Southeast fans to enter the Main Gymnasium.
I would suggest that if you want to come early to Kearney High School, we will have you wait in the Commons/Cafeteria until our staff is ready to allow spectators into the gymnasium. While I can't provide a definite time as a suggestion to arrive to gain admission, I would estimate 7:15 - 7:30 p.m. If needed, we will delay the start of the A-4 District Semifinal until all spectators have gained admission to the facility. If you enter the facility before we clear the facility, you will be expected to pay admission for the second game as well. Our Activity Staff will be around to assist with the process.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we deal with the weather-related issues and also the NSAA expectations as it relates to their postseason events. Please contact the Kearney High School Activities Office if you have any questions.
