Following Governor Bill Lee’s announcement that schools should remain closed for the school year, he TSSAA announced on Wednesday that the remaining events scheduled for the current school year are cancelled.
“With the Governor’s announcement of school closure for the remainder of the school year, all remaining TSSAA events for 2019-20, including all spring sports and the postponed BlueCross Basketball Championships, are cancelled,” the TSSAA explained on their website.
The TSSAA had some words of encouragement for the seniors who will not be able to finish their seasons.
“We thank you for everything you have done for your schools and communities and wish you the very best in your bright futures,” the TSSAA said on their website. “This is difficult, but the lessons you’ve learned and friendships you’ve made through high school activities will last your lifetime.”
