The year is officially over for all high school athletes in Missouri.
The Missouri State High School Activities Association announced Thursday that because Governor Parson ended the school year for all districts, MSHSAA will be canceling all post-season events.
“This decision is very difficult for all involved especially given the impact it will have on our students,parents, coaches, teachers, and administrators throughout the state,” MSHSAA Executive Director Dr. Kerwin Urhahn said in a statement. “We thank all of the participants, the coaches/directors/advisors, the administrations, the parents, and everyone else who has dedicated tremendous amounts of time, passion, and effort to these events.”
MSHSAA officials said they would be working to be ready for student-athletes to return to competition this fall for the 2020-2021 school year.
