The University of Wisconsin-Madison announced Friday, April 10, it is extending the cancellation of campus events through June 30, which eliminates the possibility of conducting WIAA state tournaments scheduled at campus venues this spring.
The events impacted by the closure include the boys individual and team tennis tournaments scheduled at Nielsen Tennis Stadium on June 4-6 and June 12-13, respectfully; the boys golf championship at University Ridge on June 15-16; and the softball tournament at Goodman Diamond on June 11-13.
The decision to extend the closure addresses the ongoing concern and efforts to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19.
At its special meeting on March 19, the WIAA Board of Control resolved to postpone any decision to cancel the spring sports seasons and spring state tournaments to a later date or until new developments arise and new information becomes available.
The Board of Control will conduct its scheduled meeting on April 21 via video conferencing and will discuss options for the remainder of the spring sports seasons and summertime contact.
The WIAA will continue to be in alliance with the directives issued by Gov. Tony Evers in relation to the closure or reopening of schools.
