Helias girls game called off

December 16th, 2012 in News

The Helias-St. James girls basketball junior varsity and varsity games scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Rackers Fieldhouse were called off due to the deaths of a pair of St. James students.

The students, both senior girls who were not members of the basketball team, were killed in a one-vehicle accident early Saturday morning on I-44.

Helias girls basketball coach and athletic director Doug Light said he received a call a few hours after the accident telling him St. James did not want to play Saturday.

"I understood completely," Light said.

Light said there have been no discussions about rescheduling the game.
