WHSAA Extends Suspension of Spring Sports
The Wyoming High School Activities Association has extended the hiatus of high school sports in the state and this includes no practices.
WHSAA Commissioner Ron Laird released information that goes along with what was sent out by Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon and State Superintendent Jillian Balow on Sunday. It references the new CDC guidelines of no gatherings of 50 people or more for eight weeks.
This was the statement from the WHSAA:
We will extend the suspension of all activities until Monday, April 6th. So that everyone will be on an equal playing field, there will be NO PRACTICES during the suspension. If and when we do resume spring sports, we will hold to the 9-day practice rule and will count any practices from last week. Golf and Tennis will not begin until the suspension is lifted and will need to meet the same practice rule as in the past. We recommend you encourage your athletes to stay active and workout on their own during this time period.
After our conference call this morning with the WDE, there are still questions they will be addressing this week concerning making up of lost days vs. extending the school year. We will not make a decision on spring sports at this time until there is further clarity on that issue. We will be reconvening the WHSAA Board to have further discussions on this matter.
The virtual option for FBLA and FCCLA will also be CANCELLED at this time until we get further guidance from WDE.
WyoPreps will continue to provide updates as any new information is released.
