The Nebraska School Activities Association has Spring athletics, activities, competitions and practices through Friday, May 1st. State officials in Nebraska say they will monitor the situation and provide an update later in April. The action is similar to the South Dakota High School Activities Association which earlier this week suspended Spring activities through May 1st as well.
The Howard Wood Dakota Relays have been cancelled for this spring. Bill O’Connor is the Board of Directors President and says they made the decision this week to cancel the Relays, which would have been May 1st and 2nd in Sioux Falls. The Howard Wood Dakota Relays annually attracts thousands of high school and college athletes from a multi-state area.
