TORRINGTON – The Wyoming High School Activities Association Board of Directors announced it has canceled the spring sports season on Tuesday afternoon.
“It is with deep regret that the WHSAA Board of Directors announces the cancelling of all spring sports,” the WHSAA release said. “Due to the continuing influence of COVID-19, we are not able to predict when it will be safe to resume spring sports, nor are we able to assure if any of our communities would be able to host any of our events.
“The WHSAA Board of Directors promotes the benefits of participating in education-based activities. We also understand the overwhelming disappointment this decision is for our student athletes, especially our seniors.
“As we all continue to adapt to the pandemic, academics need to be the focus of our students and schools to be able to complete a successful school year.
“Please realize that our highest priority, as always, is ensuring the health and safety of our students, schools and communities during this challenging time. We must be a responsible organization and we look forward to the day when our students are again participating in education-based activities.”
