Will local athletes head to the practice fields as soon as Monday? That's what the WIAA Board of Control will decide when it meets this morning.
It was less than a month ago the governing body met and voted to delay the start of the fall sports season by as much as a month for high contact sports like volleyball, soccer, and football. Lower contact sports are either a week or two behind usual or if they're cross country runners, right on time. The WIAA Board of Control also opened the door for a spring season for schools not comfortable competing in the fall and will have to decide what the playoffs will look like. Not competing at all this fall is also an option with local college conferences canceling their seasons and states like Illinois and Minnesota pushing some of their fall sports like football to the spring. Michigan, Iowa and Indiana high schools are all planning on having fall seasons with some scheduling adjustments.
