CHAPEL HILL — The North Carolina High School Athletic Association addressed the Monday, March 23 news conference by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper by issuing a statement in response to the executive order closing all North Carolina public schools through May 15th.

North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) Commissioner Que Tucker released the following statement:

“Having heard the updated information relative to schools remaining closed until the middle of May, NCHSAA interscholastic athletics will remain suspended until at least May 18.

“The NCHSAA Board of Directors and staff will use the next few weeks to weigh our future decisions based on the new directions given by Governor Cooper, other government leaders, and organizations charged with public health and safety during this unprecedented time. Such decisions will include the possible resumption of spring sports competition and the possibility of holding the state basketball championships.

“While we remain hopeful that we will be able to resume competition, particularly for our senior student-athletes, we also recognize the need to protect the health and safety of our students, coaches and the communities we serve.”

The NCHSAA had hoped to resume high school atheltics in North Carolina on April 7, but the potential spread and severity of the virus forced the pushback to the new date of May 18.
