working to reschedule
The ILH is drawing up new
plans, while the OIA has already
sent a new proposal to its principals
Clay Benham, executive secretary of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu, said league officials are drawing up new schedules to make up this week's football games, bowling, water polo and volleyball matches and cross country meet.
He said ILH football coaches will meet today to discuss changes to the schedule.
Dwight Toyama, executive secretary of the Oahu Interscholastic Association, said the league has sent proposed schedule changes to school principals for their approval.
The Department of Education postponed this week's games for the state's public schools on Wednesday.
The DOE decision shuts down activities for the Big Island Interscholastic Federation, Kauai Interscholastic Federation, Maui Interscholastic League and OIA.
ILH principals, representing Oahu private schools, elected yesterday to also suspend play this weekend.
The suspension of co-curricular activities began yesterday and extends through Sunday.
Among the OIA football matchups postponed this week are meetings between Red Conference rivals Kahuku and Waianae and White Conference leaders Aiea and Roosevelt. OIA football coordinator Richard Townsend said this week's games could be included in the revised schedule.
The OIA also had volleyball and cross country events scheduled for this weekend.
The BIIF must reschedule events in football, bowling, cross country and air riflery.
The KIF postponed two air riflery matches yesterday and tonight's football game between Kapaa and Kauai.
The MIL had two football games scheduled for this weekend, including the first of two showdowns between rivals Baldwin and Maui.
With the postponement of this week's ILH football games, Kamehameha and Pac-Five will have their regular-season openers pushed back to Sept. 22. Both teams last played Sept. 1.
Pac-Five was scheduled to face Iolani tomorrow in the first game of a doubleheader at Aloha Stadium. Kamehameha would have played Punahou in the second game.
