(LEX 18) — What has already been assumed has now been confirmed.

The KHSAA announced on Tuesday that the rest of the 2019-20 athletic season has officially been canceled. The announcement comes just a day after the closure of all K-12 schools to in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year was announced.

Archery, Bass Fishing, Esports, Baseball, Softball, Tennis and Track and Field are the spring sports whose seasons are being terminated.

“We have until this point purposely taken a measured approach to the resumption of our basketball events and consideration of the ending of the spring seasons for sports and sport-activities,” stated KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “We have accepted continual guidance from a variety of sources, and have steadfastly held on to hope that the great student-athletes who represent their schools through a variety of teams would have an opportunity to compete this season.
