STEVENS POINT (WLUK) – The WIAA Board of Control voted to delay making a decision on the continuation or cancellation of the spring sports seasons and tournaments at a special meeting Thursday.

Given the directives of Gov. Tony Evers and the Department of Health Services, and after lengthy discussion, the Board decided to postpone any decision to cancel the spring sports seasons and the spring state tournament Series until a later date. This position is consistent with the current state and local guidelines, as well as advice from the Sports Medical Advisory Committee.

A clearer position may unfold as developments arise and new information becomes available. The WIAA will continue to follow the directives and guidance of state health and governmental officials pertaining to the outbreak.

Also, the WIAA annual meeting scheduled for April has been canceled.
