IHSAA announces cancellation of 2020 spring sports season

With the closure of K-12 schools throughout the state for the remainder of the school year, the Indiana High School Athletic Association has announced the cancellation of the spring sports season.

As a result of that decision, the baseball, softball, girls’ tennis, boys’ golf and boys’ and girls’ track and field seasons at Huntington North High School will not go forward.

“The Association understands the extreme seriousness of this pandemic and joins in support of current measures being implemented as well as future considerations,” stated the IHSAA in a 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.”

The IHSAA notes that it encourages its member schools and the general public to follow the guidance of the governor’s office and the Indiana State Department of Health via IN.gov/coronavirus.
