Brad Daum, Churchill County High School athletic director, said Thursday’s outdoor practices have been cancelled. Outdoor sports (football, soccer, tennis, golf and cross country) must move practices indoors.

Daum said those teams will continue using the gyms at Venturacci and Oats parks, the school cafeteria, wrestling room and weight room. The cheerleaders, meanwhile, are using the stage in the school auditorium as a practice facility.
