SDHSAA to Follow Noem’s School Request with Spring Sports

After Governor Krist Noem announced on Tuesday schools will remained closed to in person learning and staying online through May 1st, the South Dakota High School Activities Association followed up about springs sports, and said all SDHSAA spring sports practices and competitions are cancelled through Sunday, May 3rd.

The SDHSAA Board of Directors will meet in coming days to decide on the 2020 Spring Sports season, as well as the suspended/postponed events of State Basketball, Visual Arts, Region Music, and All-State Band. That agenda will be posted to the SDHSAA website when it is finalized and advanced notice of the meeting will be given per South Dakota Codified Law. The meeting will be held via teleconference and will be live streamed for the public.

The South Dakota High School Baseball Association previously stated they will follow the SDHSAA which cancels games for the first month of the season and would currently leave one weekend before the first two rounds of the state playoffs begin.
