Event cancellations impact WIAA spring tournaments
Fate of spring season could be decided at April 21 meeting
The University of Wisconsin-Madison announced it is extending the cancellation of campus events through June 30, 2020, which eliminates the possibility of conducting the WIAA State Tournaments at campus venues this spring.
The events impacted by the closure include the boys individual and team tennis tournaments scheduled at Nielsen Tennis Stadium on June 4-6 and June 12-13, respectfully; the state boys golf championship at University Ridge on June 15-16; and the state softball tournament at Goodman Diamond on June 11-13.
The decision to extend the closure addresses the ongoing concern and efforts to prevent and control the spread of the infectious disease COVID-19.
At its special meeting on March 19, the WIAA Board of Control resolved to postpone any decision to cancel the spring sports seasons and the spring State Tournament Series.
The Board of Control will conduct its scheduled meeting on April 21 via video conference and will discuss options for the remainder of the spring sports seasons and summer contact.
