Indiana High School Athletic Association Commissioner Bobby Cox has announced on Thursday afternoon that restrictions are being put on for the rest of the boys state basketball tournament, along with the girls gymnastics state finals in Muncie.
For the remaining games, each participating school will be allotted only 75 complimentary tickets aside from the 12 dressed players and to include only essential personnel, coaches, administrative staff and immediate family of players.
Non-varsity boys basketball participants, cheerleaders, dance teams, school mascots and pep bands may not attend the games. This measure is to protect the health and safety of the student athletes, their families and the public at large.
Anyone holding a regional ticket will be issued a full refund at the point of purchase. Individuals must present the ticket(s) in order to receive a refund. Guidelines for the boys semi-states and state championship games have yet to be determined and will be announced at a later date.
For the gymnastics state finals, due to the number of participants and essential workers, coaches, spotters, and medical personnel at the gymnastics state finals, there will be no spectators allowed at the event and thus no tickets on sale at Worthen Arena.
Anyone holding a state finals ticket will be issued a full refund at the point of purchase. Individuals must present the ticket(s) in order to receive a refund.
Events for both basketball and gymnastics will be streamed live on IHSAAtv.org.
