Winter Sports Championships Cancelled
Posted December 11, 2020
With COVID-19 cases on the rise across the state, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association announced it will be throwing in the towel on its winter sports championships.
The NYSPHSAA officially canceled the 2021 winter state championships on Friday, Dec. 11, and postponed all high-risk sports until further notice unless they are given the green light by state health officials that it would be safe to resume activities.
Sports considered “high risk” by the Association are: basketball, boys lacrosse, competitive cheerleading, football, ice hockey, volleyball, and wrestling. If there is a postseason for those sports, decisions on a championship will be determined at the section level.
