LA GRANDE — There will be no high school sporting events in Oregon until at least April.

The OSAA, a day after it canceled the remainder of the winter championships, announced Friday it is canceling all spring practices and competitions through March 31.

The news comes in light of Gov. Kate Brown’s decision to cancel schools throughout the state through March 31 in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus, or COVID-19.

“During this suspension we will evaluate this evolving public health situation with the Oregon Health Authority, the Oregon Department of Education, the OSAA Executive Board, the OSAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee and member school administrators from throughout the state to determine when, or if, to resume the spring season,” the OSAA stated Friday morning in a brief press release.
