LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Jefferson High School is imposing restrictions, per new regulations by the Tippecanoe County Health Department, on how many fans can attend its athletic events this winter.
The spectator regulations say only two tickets per participant can be sold. Opposing teams can bring a maximum of eight cheerleaders.
The school is not selling tickets to the general public.
Crawley Center, the 7,200 seat home of Broncho basketball, volleyball and wrestling will remain largely empty. Consequently, the atmosphere inside the building will be largely different.
"It's certainly hard for them to get used to competing without the fans," Athletic Director Joe Hernandez said.
"But their happier than they could be to be competing."
The school's pep-band will be allowed in the arena to provide support for the team.
