Border Battle 2020 has been canceled.
Border Battle Players, Parents & Fans,
We are sad to say we have canceled the 2020 Border Battle. We did not take this decision lightly. It is a highlight of our year and hopefully a highlight for the players.
Here are some of the reasons the DAYBA Board voted to cancel.
1. Most importantly we thought DAYBA should not put the players, parents, and fans at risk. With the virus now detected in Minnesota and Wisconsin, we felt things are not going to get better in the next two weeks, only worse. So we decided, why wait, cancel.
2. We are quite certain there will not be a basketball facility in our area that will host the game. UMD has canceled classes and moved them online. The UMD hockey playoff games are canceled.
3. We did not want to cause player/parent conflict over if you should play or not.
4. Most, not all sporting events are being canceled. Pro and college games are being canceled at a fast rate. The MSHSL being the exception at the moment. (late update: the MSHSL has now limited spectators at games) Our event is much smaller in size, but people are coming from a large area.
Each spring, DAYBA produces the "Border Battle" All-Star Game Sponsored by St. Luke's Orthopedics, pitting elite players from Northeastern Minnesota vs. players from North Central Wisconsin. This is the premiere all-star game in the Northland!
At the 2019 event, we picked a Mike Gerber MVP award winner for both the girl's game and the boy's game. Each MVP — Olivia Lane of Pequot Lakes; and Mason Ackley of Superior — received an engraved bronze basketball.
