There is finally some good news to report.
Very good news.
Details are sketchy but WCSSAA will be back in action as early as Tuesday as a number of schools will participate in what are being called CWOSSA-qualifying tournaments in junior and senior boys basketball, junior and senior girls volleyball, as well as girls and boys hockey.
Curling, wrestling and swimming will also resume.
WCSSAA president Darcy Mintz would not provide specifics when contacted on Friday afternoon, but said there was enough interest to resume competition in every winter sport. He would not say how many schools were in each sport and he would not say which schools would be participating.
Friday was to have been the final date for Waterloo Region's public high schools to inform WCSSAA whether they were in or out, but that deadline has been extended because of the snow day.
Mintz made it clear that no WCSSAA champions would be crowned in hockey, volleyball or basketball. Teams were competing for the right to participate in the OFSAA qualifying tournaments that are being hosted by CWOSSA and nothing else.
Talks are ongoing between WCSSAA and District 8, which had started its own hockey tournaments when it appeared WCSSAA was done for the season.
Let's hope the momentum builds and all schools will be represented in WCSSAA's spring season.
