The Minnesota State High School League announced on Thursday that the remainder of all activities for the 2019-20 season have been canceled.
The announcement includes all participation in events including, but not limited to, practices tryouts, scrimmages, contests and competitions as well as postseason tournaments.
The decision to cancel the spring sports season comes on the heels of Gov. Tim Walz's announcement that schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"I am sorry for all of our students who will miss out on graduations, tournaments, and end of year graduations," Walz said in his Thursday press conference.
The 2020 season for high school athletics appear to be a wash at this point as part of the MSHSL's winter championships, including boys and girls basketball, were canceled due to the outbreak.
The MSHSL will review related rules, policies, and bylaws that impact participation at its meeting on Friday and advised all schools to adhere to all aspects of Minnesota's current "Stay at Home" order, which is scheduled to expire on May 4.
