WHSAA Announces Spring Sports Canceled Due to COVID-19

WYOMING — The Wyoming High School Activities Association announced Tuesday evening that all spring sports would be canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

“Due to the continuing influence of COVID-19, we are not able to predict when it will be safe to resume spring sports, nor are we able to assure if any of our communities would be able to host any of our events,” WHSAA Commissioner Ron Laird said.

The decision comes from the WHSAA Board of Directors. While the decision wasn’t easy, Laird said that the safety of everyone involved is the top priority. Laird also added that academics should be the focus during this challenging time.

“As we all continue to adapt to the pandemic, academics need to be the focus of our students and schools to be able to complete a successful school year,” Laird said.

“We must be a responsible organization and we look forward to the day when our students are again participating in education-based activities,” Laird said.
