Update: Union’s girls’ basketball games for Friday, January 29 vs. Bartlesville have been postponed due to COVID-19 protocols for Union. Our Hall of Fame activities have been postponed to Friday, February 19 as we will recognize our honorees at halftime of the girls’ game that evening.
At this time, our boys’ basketball games (JV and Varsity) are still on for Friday evening but that is tentative due to COVID protocols. A final decision on whether we play on Friday night with our boys’ team will be made by Wednesday.
