COVID-19 on Thursday completed its rout of New Mexico high school sports in 2020.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Thursday afternoon said the three sports that were left on the state’s prep calendar this fall — volleyball, cross country and golf — can’t be held this fall.
“We can’t do the competitions,” Lujan Grisham said.
The New Mexico Activities Association announced that all three sports would be shifted to 2021, which is when every other sport — including football and soccer that typically are played in the fall — already had been moved due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
