Friday’s boys and girls varsity basketball games between Oakland High and McClymonds have been postponed until further notice because of concerns of potential violence.
“Continued conflicts between rival high school students have created additional security concerns around (Oakland Athletic League) games,” Oakland Unified School District spokesman Troy Flint wrote in an e-mail. “We’re erring on the side of caution and postponing events that could provide a forum for those looking to address preexisting disputes. At the same time, we’re working to better understand and resolve the underlying conflicts so they don’t jeopardize the students involved or the ability of the League to conduct its events in a normal fashion.”
No make up date has been announced.
