The latest report from son:
Yesterday, all four teams petitioned again to continue the tournament. Its unclear who exactly the petition went to. It could’ve been the conference office, or all the league athletic directors, or a select group of some kind.
Today, word came back that the petition was denied. No other details.
The rule should be revisited. one option would be to start league play a week earlier so there’s more time to complete a tournament.
As RJM mentioned, finals may have been an issue. Son’s in the middle of his now.
