Due to the high temperatures, extreme humidity and heat indexes over 100 degrees at game time, tonight's Central Iowa Lacrosse Association Summer League games are canceled. While I hate cancelling games for any reason, this is the best course of action for tonight. Today is arguably the hottest day of the year so far and the humidity and heat index definitely exceed anything we have experienced in 2010. In addition to the increased potential for illness and injury, the high heat will dissuade many from attending. So in the best interest of every player, we are not having games.
I am hopeful that this will be our only cancellation as next week's temperatures are predicted to be a good 6-10 degrees lower. Last year we managed to play for entire summer with only a minor interruption around this time.
The schedule will be examined and changes will be considered. I am also contemplating make up games.
