UPDATE (3/12/2020, 1:30 PM):
The OHSAA has announced the postponement of the 2020 State Ice Hockey Tournament until further notice.
March 11, 2020:
Following a request from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine to limit fans at all indoor sporting events due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) is restricting attendance at this weekend's State Ice Hockey Tournament.
Per the OHSAA, each student-athlete will receive four tickets for family members. These tickets will be for both sessions at Nationwide Arena.
All purchased and complimentary tickets are now void. Tickets bought online will be refunded to Ticketmaster to the same credit card in 5-10 days. Any tickets purchased by check will be refunded in about 4-5 weeks. If you bought a ticket in the Saint Ignatius Athletic Department, you can bring your ticket the office to get your refund.
The Saint Ignatius Broadcast Network will be permitted to broadcast both the State Semifinal vs. Gilmour Academy, and, if the Wildcats advance, the State Championship. Puckdrop for both games will be at noon. As per usual, the SIBN will be broadcasting audio-only, per OHSAA rules.
The OHSAA will also offer a video broadcast available for purchase, available here. If any details pertaining to the broadcasts change, we will provide updates here.
Jack O'Rourke, Pat Keane, and Ethan Schum will be on the call this weekend for the SIBN. Viewers can tune in at:
