WIAA officially cancels all spring sports
NORTHWOODS - The WIAA has officially announced the cancellation of all spring sports due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement came after a meeting of the WIAA Board of Control, where committee members discussed the feasibility of continuing spring sports.

Despite the cancellations, the WIAA is allowing 30 contact days for spring sports athletes over the summer during which they may meet with coaches and teammates, pending both local and state guidelines.

Gov. Tony Evers' extended Safer at Home order closed all schools for the rest of the academic year. The WIAA had previously stated that play would not continue without schools in session.

WIAA medical advisory chairman Dr. Kevin Walter said it's too early to talk about potential impact on fall sports yet.
