Due to the IDPH and IHSA limit on the number of spectators, WHS will only be allowing 50 fans for boys and girls basketball. The priority at this time is for family members to be present to watch their athlete compete. Due to these restrictions, our opponents on the road will not be permitting our fans to attend. They are limiting attendance to their home fans only. Waterloo will be live streaming all home basketball games through the NFHS broadcast system. Several of our opponents will also be streaming our away games. These will also be available to you on the NFHS Network. Please see the link below for information on creating an NFHS account. This access is at no cost to Bulldog fans this year. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13KUsfc0TyYjsbLU8J9KOCBkP4t9UHmIe/view?usp=sharing
