The Virginia High School League will delay any final decision to provide options on spring sports until May, the VHSL announced following a conference call held Tuesday morning with its crisis management team.
The call was held to discuss all options relating to spring sports and academic activities after the current academic year ends and into the summer.
“While we recognize the importance sports has on our students and communities, the COVID-19 threat is real and people need to follow all the regulations and recommendations from the CDC, Virginia Department of Health, and the governor. We must make that our number one priority,” said VHSL Executive Director Dr. John W. “Billy” Haun.
“The Crisis Management team overwhelmingly felt a decision on an extension to the spring sports season should be put on hold until May. Any options for the spring sports season will require that COVID-19 is no longer a threat and poses no health risks to our student-athletes or the public.”
