High school athletes across the Door Peninsula have been subjected to the sports equivalent of the sword of Damocles for six weeks. Monday, the blade came crashing down as the WIAA canceled all spring sports and their respective postseason tournaments. The closure of the University of Wisconsin system through June had stripped the organization of a site to host championship games. The extension of Governor Evers’ “Safer at Home” order robbed athletic directors of a chance to use their school’s facilities for games. Eventually, the restrictions proved too much.
Each team is allowed 30 days of contact, which can include seniors. This will enable squads to practice and hold competitions during the summertime. Assuming there is overlap with club teams, most players would be restricted from participating in both.
