FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - A holiday high school basketball staple featuring the Summit Athletic Conference schools has been put on hold for 2020.
The annual Holiday Tournament, traditionally held around Christmas, has been canceled due for COVID-19 related reasons.
"The decision was made because of the COVID-19 risk and exposure for fans and players and the loss in sponsors to cover tournament costs," said a statement from Fort Wayne Community Schools.
Both the boys and girls basketball teams from the conference take part in the tournament, which had been held at Wayne High School over the past several years.
The tournament is expected to return in 2021.
