Winter Spectator Protocols

From High School Athletic Director Chance Young:

Mississinewa Community Schools will work closely with the Grant County Health Department, the IHSAA, and the Governor’s Office to determine the amount of spectators that will be permitted at each of our contests.  These guidelines are based on the current infection rates and spread of the COVID-19 virus in our county. The guidelines will be evaluated on a continuous basis by all parties involved and are subject to change throughout the season.

High School and RJB winter athletic schedules are up for this season.

Covid-19: Before entering sporting events at Mississinewa High School and RJ Baskett Middle School masks are required and please social distance so Indian athletes can keep doing what they love.

Girls Basketball: In a 57-40 loss in the opening night of high school basketball, the Tribe lost much more than the game. With ten seconds left in the opening frame, senior Darah Watson went down with a knee injury and ended her high school basketball career with scoring 4 points in last night’s game. “You could tell tonight that the team was a little deflated when she went out. She’s our leader. She’s our vocal leader. She’s our scoring leader. That was tough. I love the kid, and I shed a couple of tears not knowing what’s going on”- Head Coach Laura Friday. (Sean Douglas)
