Good Afternoon Spartan Nation,
It has been decided that in the best interests of the health and safety of our student athletes, staff and fans from both schools, the decision has been made to postpone tomorrow nights (11/16) football playoff game scheduled in Winters, CA. The continued unhealthy/hazardous Air Quality Index levels have significantly impacted practices and the forecast does not show any improvement for the game as scheduled. On Monday November 19th, communication will be sent from each school roughly around noon, after collaboration among the leadership to determine the possibility of re-scheduling the game for Wednesday Nov. 21st at 7pm at Winters High School. At this time it is a conditional date and time based on the hope that AQI levels will improve to an acceptable level. Next Friday or Saturday 11/23 & 11/24) are possible dates as well. The State CIF office moved the Nor Cal Regional and State Bowl games back a week, providing the Nor Cal Sections that are impacted the opportunity to play section playoff games prior to State Championship bowl series. All decisions will be made in the best interests and health of the East Nicolaus High School student athletes, staff and community. Continued communication will be delivered by noon on Monday, November 19th. We will continue to modify practice schedules to ensure all our players and staff are being as safe possible and communicate with our families through all means available.
