It was a strange day for the Coeur d’Alene girls basketball team Thursday. And for Highland of Pocatello for that matter. The teams were scheduled to play tonight in a nonleague game. But CdA learned Thursday that school today was canceled because parents were concerned about rumors circulating about a possible shooting plot. By school district rules, all athletic events are canceled. CdA practiced for 2½ hours. Highland rode a bus for nearly 10 hours before arriving at CdA about 6. The coaches for both teams decided to play at 8:30. Somehow the third-ranked Vikings fought off fatigue from practice to hold off the No. 2-ranked Rams 42-38 in a nonleague game/Greg Lee, SR.

Question: Did the girls basketball teams do the right thing by playing the game last night?
