Practice can start on schedule next Monday for Niagara-Orleans League basketball land wrestling teams following approval from both the Orleans and Niagara County Health Departments.

“Everything is a go for next week. The Orleans and Niagara Health Departments have said that we can start,” said Albion Athletic Director Adam Krenning following a meeting of the N-O League ADs this morning.

Krenning added that following Section VI guidelines there will be no spectators at the games.

The Erie County Health Department had already given its approval earlier in the week which clears the way for N-O member Akron to begin practice on schedule.

The approval also clears the way for the three Orleans County Genesee Region League members – Holley, Kendall and Lyndonville – to also begin practice as planned next Monday.
