LHSAA postpones spring, winter sports

NATCHEZ— The Louisiana High School Athletics Association announced Friday spring and winter sports are postponed due to COVID-19.

In a memorandum sent on March 13, the LHSAA stated that they will adhere to the 30-day closure of K-12 public schools with the postponement of spring and winter sports.

The LHSAA Executive Committee will meet on April 7 and April 8 at its regularly scheduled meetings to discuss the LHSAA’s direction after the April 13 mandate by John Bel Edwards, Governor of Louisiana.

Schools can still practice through the mandated time period (March 16 to April 13) but it will be left to the discretion of the administration and the schools involved.
