BREAKING: WHSAA Halts Activities for Two Weeks
After several meetings in the last 24 hours, the Wyoming High School Activities Association Board of Directors has suspended all activities over the next two weeks.
This comes on the heels of Thursday's cancelation of the 3A/4A State Basketball tournaments in Casper. The release includes an announcement that there will be no make-up for this year's tournaments, either.
Here is the full WHSAA COVID-19 Update:
The WHSAA Board of Directors, representing the 72 members schools in Wyoming, is issuing the following guidance as we proceed with our school activities.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the WHSAA has suspended all extracurricular activities statewide, beginning Monday, March 16th through at least March 28, 2020, with schools having the option to extend the timeline should they choose.
The 3A/4A State Basketball Tournament will not take place this year. We understand the tremendous disappointment this decision is for our student-athletes, especially our seniors, but please realize that we must be a responsible state organization and that our highest priority is ensuring the safety of our students, schools, and communities.
Spring sports practices will be allowed at the discretion of each school district. The WHSAA staff will continue to work diligently with the state entities that are experts in this area and follow their guidance as we proceed in determining the best course of action with the remainder of the spring activities. We encourage all our schools to do the same with their local and county experts.
We appreciate your patience and support of our students as we work through this complex situation.
