“Lanphier and Coach Turner are always a fixture of the City Tournament and we have missed the traditions involving them during this special weekend,” said District 186 Superintendent Jennifer Gill.  “The conversations about quarantine requirements were difficult, and we applaud the girls and boys basketball teams for holding their heads high when tough decisions came their way. We’re excited for the rescheduled games and Lanphier boys and girls returning in full force next year.” 

“We thank all of the city girls and boys basketball teams for understanding and coming to the table to change our schedule and follow the protocols that we had to put in place. We look forward to bringing back City in its familiar format in coming years,” said Jason Wind, Executive Director of School Support and Athletics for District 186.
