NCMC Holiday Hoops CANCELLED
At a special meeting of the Holiday Hoops Steering Committee held last night, it was decided to cancel the 2020 edition of High School Holiday Hoops scheduled for this December. Steve Maxey, one of the event organizers, stated due to 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.
Maxey said the Committee knows it is disappointing for student athletes, coaches and fans, members felt that there would be no way to guarantee a safe environment for the number of attendees converging on the Campus of North Central Missouri College 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 16th annual event on the NCMC Campus and due to the large number of schools and student/athletes involved, officials felt the decision to cancel was the right decision for the safety of all involved.
Maxey said the Steering Committee is deeply sorry but are already talking about the 2021 event.
