“Schools, coaches, student athletes, officials, spectators, parents, and yes, NCS staff are frustrated,” said North Coast Section Commissioner Gil Lemmon in a published letter…”However, let us not forget that the NCS Championships are contests, not life and death. Let us not forget that over 65 people in the community of Paradise, and surrounding communities, lost their lives, over 600 are missing, thousands lost their homes, and have been uprooted to other areas of California, or even other states, all in an instant.”
