INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana High School Athletic Association has redrawn one Class 3A sectional to include Griffith and Hammond following a ruling by a Lake County judge.

Both schools had their seasons canceled by the state’s high school governing body after a brawl Feb. 7. They’re now challenging the decision in court, and The (Munster) Times reports each team practiced Friday — the first time either had held practice since Feb. 6, the day before the game.

An injunction hearing is scheduled for Monday morning.

If the injunction is imposed, Griffith would face Lighthouse CPA on Thursday at 7 p.m. Hammond Gavit would face Gary Roosevelt on Friday at 6 p.m. and Bowman Academy would play Hammond on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Hammond Clark would get a bye into the second round.
