Given the current COVID-19 positivity rate across Story County, we have made the decision as a District to host Friday night’s football game against Urbandale with no crowd. This means no band, student section, or walk-up tickets. Leading into this decision, we planned for this night with a wide-range of mitigation steps that included vastly limiting crowd numbers. As we have progressed throughout this week, we know that those steps are not enough for our community and county. The only individuals that will be permitted to attend the game are key event staff and parents/guardians of senior cheer and football players to participate in the previously scheduled senior night recognition (masks required).
This football game will be the last game for at least two weeks as the District enters the Required Continuous Learning online model. During that time, all athletic practices and competitions will be suspended. The Iowa High School Athletic Association has agreed to deem any scheduled competitions while in this delivery model as a “no contest.” At the end of the 2020 season, Ames High athletics will process refunds of previously purchased season tickets.
Even though our community will not be able to attend in person, you can still watch the Little Cyclones compete at Ames High Stadium. We will be live-streaming the game, and as always, you can listen to it on 1430 KASI radio.
