What was thought to be a death sentence for the WIAA's spring season is now clinging to life support.
Governor Tony Evers shut down school buildings until the end of the school year, canceling extracurricular activities in the process. That could have been enough for the WIAA to drop the hammer on its spring sports season. Instead, the WIAA left the door open just a crack, saying on its website that "will discuss the membership’s options for the remainder of the spring sports seasons and for summertime regulations at its scheduled meeting on April 21 via video conferencing." The WIAA will face an uphill battle moving forward to start the spring sports season since the order postpones all interscholastic practices, scrimmages, and events. It also lost UW-Madison as a state championship host site earlier this month when the campus announced it would be shuttering its campus until June 30th.
