IHSAA cancels spring sports
INDIANAPOLIS—The Indiana High School Athletic Association has canceled the spring sports tournament series events for the 2019-2020 school year.
The cancellation followed the announcement on Thursday that all K-12 school buildings in Indiana will remain closed for the remainder of the school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is imperative that our students, coaches, officials, administrators and parents be encouraged in every manner to adhere to the guidance provided by our leadership. The Association understands the extreme seriousness of this pandemic and joins in support of current measures being implemented as well as future considerations,” an IHSAA official said in the press release. “In unwavering support yet with extreme sadness, we must cancel our spring sports programming. We join all Hoosiers in anticipation of a triumphant homecoming back to our schools in the fall of 2020 complete with a full complement of IHSAA sports.”
