On November 2, 2020 The Catholic Diocese of Peoria released the following statement.....
“The high schools located in the Diocese of Peoria will not participate in the Illinois High School Association basketball season for 2020-21.”
"This decision is based primarily on the fact that the Illinois Department of Health has recently released guidelines which raise basketball to a high level risk of potential COVID exposure.”
We, the undersigned, call on the Catholic Diocese of Peoria , Daniel R. Jenky, Bishop of Peoria, and Louis Tylka, coadjutor bishop of Peoria, to reverse their decision regarding the upcoming high school basketball season.
