The annual Holiday Hoops event at North Central Missouri College in Trenton has been called for this season.
A special meeting of the Holiday Hoops steering committee was held Tuesday night and at that meeting it was decided to cancel the 2020 edition of High School Holiday Hoops scheduled for this December.
Citing the increasing number of COVID cases in Grundy and surrounding counties, coupled with the many counties in both Missouri and Iowa where participating high schools are coming from, the committee felt there was no other decision to make but to cancel. Committee members felt there would be no way to guarantee a safe environment for the number of attendees converging on the campus over a 9-day period.
Fifty-five high schools from Missouri and Iowa represented by over 100 teams were scheduled to be in Trenton for the 9-day event.
The Steering Committee says while they are sorry this year’s event is canceled they are already beginning talks about the 2021 event.
