(New Buffalo, MI) - New Buffalo fans will have to travel a greater distance to watch tonight’s District 4 boys’ high school basketball championship game.
The game originally scheduled at River Valley High School has been moved to Eau Claire. However, because of a threat at River Valley High School, the Michigan High School Athletic Association approved the move.
“I believe that threat has been investigated, but they are still not comfortable hosting the game,” said New Buffalo High School Athletic Director Matt Johnson.
Johnson said the MHSAA explained that Eau Claire was chosen to host the District 4 championship since the regionals are held at New Buffalo.
The Bison ranked No. 1 in Class D plays Eau Claire ranked No. 11 in Class D. New Buffalo defeated River Valley in a hard-fought contest Wednesday night to advance to the district finals.
The (20-1) Bison are looking to repeat as District 4 champs.
