Today the Iowa High School Athletic Association and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union have announced that spring sports will be pushed back.
According to the two organizations that, for the time being, are acting as one, they have updated the spring sports schedule. The new schedule follows recommendations from Governor Kim Reynolds, who last week, recommended schools stay closed until April 30th. Under this new schedule, all spring sports practices would start on May 1st. The competitions for track and field, golf, and tennis would start on May 4th. Soccer will hold their first practice on May 1st, but won’t be able to hold competitions until May 8th.
Pushing back the start of spring sports means tournaments will also be pushed back. The 2020 Iowa High School Boys’ and Girls’ State Track and Field Meet is now set for June 4th, 5th, and 6th.
