Minnesota State High School League readies for restarting winter sports, state tournaments

MSHSL task force recommends Dec. 21 restart, full spring slate


December 2, 2020


Fewer fans than usual were in the stands at Williams Arena for the opening tipoff on March 12 between Hopkins and Stillwater, one of the last state tournament games played before the coronavirus pandemic.

Anything but idle during the current pause on winter sports, a Minnesota State High School League task force has finalized scenarios for the return of both the season and state tournaments.

On Thursday, the league's board of directors is expected to vote on a recommendation to approve starting the winter sports season Dec. 21, three days after Gov. Tim Walz's four-week pause is scheduled to end.

While some school districts already have decided to postpone winter sports until after Jan. 1, the league is seeking to be ready Dec. 21, keeping it in concert with youth sports.
