JAMESTOWN – Starting tomorrow high school athletes in Western New York will be allowed to bring two people to attend home games for the remainder of the winter season.

That’s the word from Section VI Executive Director Mark DiFilippo who issued a statement announcing the news on Tuesday.










DiFilippo says this will be for games held on school property.

Individual schools do have the ability to adjust the policy if they don’t have room to safely host spectators.





Sports that take place at private institutions, like hockey arenas, will continue to make the parameters for spectators.

For instance, most hockey arenas now allow one spectator per athlete.
