Coronavirus: State Tournaments Cancelled; Sports, in General, On Hold

Sports, in general, are on hold as pro, college and high school sports officials try to limit the spread of the coronavirus.  The WIAA, NCAA, NBA, Major League Baseball, and NHL have all suspended play.  In the Big 10 tournament, play was suspended in the middle of a game.

The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association canceled all remaining state tournaments Thursday night.

In a statement, the WIAA said the remaining games for the State Girls Basketball Tournament, the boys basketball sectional finals and the State Tournament were canceled.

Tickets for the state tournaments will be refunded in full. The WIAA asked for fans to allow time for these refunds to be made and to only contact the office if they don’t see a refund to accounts within two weeks of the tournament.

Any tickets bought at school will be refunded by that school and not the Resch Center or the WIAA.

The Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments are cancelled.
