With poor weather continuing to plague the spring sports season — it's snowing, again — the following message was sent out to CHSAA schools on Friday morning:
The CHSAA sports regular season end dates are determined by the individual sports committees and approved by the Legislative Council, so the office does not have the authority to change those dates. When the playoffs arrive, however, the bylaws do allow for flexibility in playing on the next available day.
The key message here is that leagues need to make plans now to determine how they will declare a league champion (and order of finish, in some cases) when the season ends and not all league games have been played.
Any questions from schools should be directed to the individual sports administrator in the CHSAA office.
The first spring championship of 2016 is girls tennis, which is slated for May 12-14. Last spring, that tournament was postponed a week by rain.
Consistent rain also forced the 3A-5A baseball tournaments to delay more than a week last season.
