Black Bear Diner Scoreboard & Schedule 2/20 – 2/24

Print

It’s a good idea to check with the individual schools to make sure games are still a go…just saying. Don’t blame us if you get there and no one else is there. Also, there may be some games not on the schedule because coaches haven’t posted on MaxPreps or haven’t sent SiskiyouYouth.com a schedule.

To report scores or schedule changes, text 530-340-0811. Email: siskiyouyouth@sisqtel.net

There appears to be much confusion on playoff dates. What coaches are hearing isn’t always matching up with the brackets from NSCIF. It would be wise to double check with the schools before making a trip.
