Ticket Sales to Prep Football Semi-State Games in the Region Restricted Following Update to COVID Map

In Lake County, which has now entered the “red” level on the state’s COVID-19 county-metrics map, school officials have announced tickets for the two local semi-state high school football championship home games will not be available to the general public, as per the Governor’s executive order. In Class 6A, Merrillville is hosting Westfield and in Class 4A Hobart is hosting Marion Friday night. Two other northwest Indiana prep football teams in semi-state action are on the road, and they are Valparaiso at Zionsville in Class 5A and Pioneer at Fort Wayne Luers in Class 2A. There’s information on how to watch the games live online at IHSAAtv.org .
