UPDATE: The NCHSAA has announced the shutdown of all spring sports starting Friday at midnight until Monday, April 6.

Earlier Thursday, the NCHSAA had announced the state basketball championships would be taking place with limited attendance, allowing just team personnel and family members.

At around 2:30 p.m. the organization officially announced that all spring sports will be suspended indefinitely including workouts, skill development, practices and contests.

“As much as we would like this opportunity for our student-athletes, coaches, and their communities, we know that ultimately any decision we make must err on the side of caution,” said Commissioner Que Tucker.
