The board of directors of the New Mexico Activities Association on Friday decided to postpone the State Spirit Championships later this month, and also to suspend all spring sports in the state “until further notice.”
The board conducted an emergency meeting via teleconference Friday afternoon. The decision by the NMAA includes all practices, plus contests/events.
“This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and the Public Education Department’s announcement that schools will be closed for three weeks starting Monday,” an NMAA news release said.
“The board of directors felt it was best to postpone,” NMAA executive director Sally Marquez told the Journal. “Everyone was on the same page.”
