WIAA says Girls State Basketball Tournament, Boys Sectionals will Continue; "Discussing Options" on Boys Tournament


The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association says the State Girls Basketball Tournament and the boys basketball sectionals scheduled for this week “will continue as planned”, despite concerns over the spread of COVID-19 or the coronavirus.

The WIAA said in a statement Wednesday that they continue to work with local and state health officials as well as other high school associations in the Midwest to make “the best decision possible” when it comes to carrying on their tournaments. The statement read, in part:

“While circumstances may change, all of the leading health resources we have been working with indicated the best way to proceed is to be overcautious and reinforce the universal guidance and precautions to know your health risk, especially those at higher risk for severe illness; wash hands repeatedly with soap or sanitizer; cover your sneeze or cough; keep hands away from your face; and if you feel sick, stay at home.”

The WIAA also says they have “discussed options for continuing to conduct the WIAA Boys Basketball State Tournament,” and that they will “continue to discuss all options.” The boys’ tournament is scheduled to take place at the Kohl Center on the UW-Madison campus the 19th through the 21st. The university on Wednesday cancelled all campus events of “more than 50 people” through at least April 10th. It’s not yet known how that would impact the boys state tournament.
