MHSAA to make decision regarding fall sports later this month

The Big Ten made the decision today to postpone fall sports in the name of health and safety amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

And while there have been fears that the MHSAA could follow suit, high school sports in Michigan are still on – for now. An official decision is set to be made on August 20, and would include for football, volleyball and boys soccer.

“Those decisions at the college level, they definitely become part of the conversation as we move forward, but they don’t necessarily change it,” MHSAA media and content coordinator Geoff Kimmerly said Tudsday afternoon.

I wouldn’t expect (any announcements) in the next 24 hours at least. I mean, (the Big Ten announcement) came out today and we’ve been talking with the governor’s office a lot, trying to work things out at our level for certain things, the volleyball and swimming thing being included. We’re going to have things we still have to figure out,” Kimmerly said.

Do you think we’ll have high school sports in Michigan this fall?
