LHSAA Announces Cancellation of Remaining Winter & Spring Sports

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association has made the decision to cancel all remaining winter and spring sports for the 2019-20 school year.

"This decision was not in haste and was discussed with tremendous concern for those senior athletes being affected," said LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine. "We realize and concur with the argument about retuning to normalcy and allowing seniors to have their moment, just like we did for boys' basketball championships, unfortunately, circumstances today are tremendously different than circumstances were that week in March. We understand the hardships and disappointments everyone, especially the class of 2020, is enduring due to the closure of schools facilities, but our unwavering focus must now remain on doing our part by continuing to follow any and all mitigation measures set forth by our Governor."
