Online Petition Calls For Expanded Attendance
An online petition is calling for high schools that are part of the DuPage Valley Conference to allow students, particularly seniors graduating this spring, to attend games. The Naperville Sun reports a Waubonsie Valley High School senior, Audrey Young, and two other students have started a petition in response to the DuPage Valley Conference’s decision not to allow student spectators at outdoor events, including football games. The Illinois High School Association set a 20% capacity of spectators at outdoor events, but didn’t state who is or isn’t allowed to get tickets. At the time of this recording the online petition has nearly 1,900 signatures.
Naperville natives Porter Moser, Tom Welch and the Loyola-Chicago men’s basketball team are heading back to the Sweet 16. After defeating Georgia Tech and Illinois over the weekend, the Ramblers advance to face Oregon State on Saturday. Coach Moser hopes to lead his team to the school’s second Final Four appearance in the last three NCAA Tournaments.
