PIAA D2 Committee to host High School BBall Championships at Mohegan Sun Arena March 11th-13th
The PIAA District 2 committee announced plans to once again hold its basketball championship games at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Township, provided there are no setbacks because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendance for these games will be limited based on state and local guidelines.
“Under the current state guidelines, a maximum of 500 people could be in the arena during a game,” said District 2 chairman Frank Majikes. “That total includes teams, officials, media and other necessary personnel. The dates for the District 2 basketball championships are March 11-13.”
The March 11 schedule will be: Class A girls championship, 3 p.m.; Class 3A boys championship, 5:30 p.m.; Class 4A girls championship, 8 p.m.
The March 12 schedule will be: Class 2A girls championship, 3 p.m.; Class 5A boys championship, 5:30 p.m.; Class 6A girls championship, 8 p.m.
The March 13 schedule will be: Class 2A boys championship, 10 a.m.; Class 3A girls championship, 12:30 p.m.; Class 4A boys championship, 3 p.m.; Class 5A girls championship, 5:30 p.m.; Class 6A boys championship, 8 p.m.
*Schedule is subject to change.
Forest City is the only D2-A boys basketball team with MMI Prep electing not to play. It is in a subregional with District 11.
The arena will be emptied between games to allow for sanitation.
More information about ticketing and public health guidelines will be posted closer to the event date.
