The weather continues to play a large part in the drama surrounding the duties of high school athletic directors
across the Tri-States. At Quincy Notre Dame, AD Bill Connell has been working the phones and texting most of
the day trying to keep to keep everyone updated on tonight’s Unity-QND varsity basketball game.
After a few hours of keeping the game on the schedule, it was finally postponed late this afternoon during the
4:00 p.m. hour. Unity Athletic Director Frank Cash made the call with ice on the streets, sidewalks, and
school parking lot in Mendon, Illinois. We thought that a make-up date for Thursday was set, but the
Mustangs had a conflict in scheduling, so we’re standing by regarding finding a date that the game might be
able to be rescheduled. It’s been that kind of day for AD’s everywhere throughout the region.
The Blue Devils of Quincy High School held practice on the hardwood on Tuesday, trying to take advantage of
the canceled game to work on getting better as a team. Keeping a steady routine, as well as maintaining their
focus, is vital at this point of the season for the Western Big 6 Conference contenders.
