Normally, Neuqua Valley’s gym is a solitary and comfortable place for John Poulakidas.

It’s where he has developed his game, especially the elite shooting ability that has made him a coveted Division prospect with 18 scholarship offers.

Now, that gym is eerily quiet. 

What should be the start of a traditional two-week camp for the Wildcats is instead in a holding pattern as the IHSA continues to work out the protocols for the return of summer contact.

“I have just been taking the time to work out every day,” Poulakidas said. “Especially in the weight room.”
