Belleville East and IIT regionals are cancelled (would have been this Saturday.)

No statement about COD regional (also this Saturday) or Rock Valley (next Saturday). Presumably they're going ahead until they aren't.

Yep, Nats has been cancelled, and just before that Florida's State tourney cancelled too.

Keeping the same rules as 2020 for the 2021 season is also pretty bonkers; what a wild week it's been so far.
