On Thursday, the MSHSL approved the “maximized winter season” with a 30% reduction in regular season games and meets due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There will also be a slightly delayed start.

Under the current COVID-19 guidelines set by the state’s health department, no spectators will be allowed at indoor events in school facilities. A limit of 250 fans will be allowed at outdoor facilities.
Subsequently, the MSHSL did not approve state tournaments for the fall season, so fall sports will end with section championships.
This is a developing story, so check back for more.
