MHSA State Basketball Tournament Status

TO:                  MONTANA NEWS MEDIA

FROM:            MARK BECKMAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

RE:                  MHSA STATE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT STATUS

The MHSA has received word from the Montana Department of Health and Human Services that there are now four confirmed cases of COVID-19.

As such, the Montana High School Association has no choice but to cancel the remainder of our state basketball tournaments.

Though this is not the result that the MHSA wants, the Association will designate the winners of tonight’s semi-final as co-state champions.

The MHSA and each host facility will address the refund of all session adult and student tickets for those individuals able to produce a ticket.  This information will be posted on the MHSA website – www.mhsa.org.

Class AA

Refunds will be issued to those who purchased all-session tickets as well as Saturday single session tickets.. All-session tickets will be refunded $14 for adult tickets and $8 for student tickets.
