CVCA To Study Lightening, Sort Of

By admin Published: September 2, 2009

CVCA athletic director Jay Tyree was in the same situation as many AD's last Friday evening when rain, lightening and thunder- but mainly lightening- forced numerous games to be suspended.

Tyree said the OHSAA rule is that once there is a lightening strike, you must wait 30 minutes from that moment before resuming the game.

CVCA's game was called at 11:20 p.m. and completed Saturday morning.

``Certainly everybody wants to finish the game (that night) and you don't want the kids sitting too long,'' Tyree said. ``And with East Canton being an hour away, you had to take that into consideration. Really, there's no other policy other than you can't play until 30 minutes after the last lightening strike.''

Tyree said because of the experience last week, the administration will meet to come up with new policies, guildelines and prodecures when it comes to handling those kinds of situations in the future.
