Charles Breithaupt, EdD, Executive Director of the University Interscholastic League, sent an email to Superintendents regarding extensions to facilitate girls and boys playoff basketball when travel conditions improve. Berithaupt’s email is as follows:
With wintery conditions delaying basketball games, UIL will be extending certification deadlines. Once we know more about when travel conditions will improve, UIL will communicate extensions to facilitate girls basketball playoff rounds and the completion of boys basketball district play. There are no plans for determining playoff round winners via coin toss. We will release a plan that allows for games to be played once more information is available related to the weather. Schools who are able to safely travel and complete games should do so according to the posted certification deadlines.
