NMAA postpones State Spirit championships, suspends spring sports programs

State Basketball Championships will continue


The New Mexico Activities Association and its board of directors announced Friday (March 13)  that it has postponed the State Spirit Championships and suspended all activity programs and spring athletic programs until further notice. 

The action includes practices as well as scheduled contests and events.  The State Basketball Championships will continue, with final games being played tomorrow, Saturday (March 14).

NMAA officials said in a statement Friday that "the decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and the Public Education Department’s announcement that schools will be closed for three weeks starting on Monday."

A special board of directors’ meeting to further discuss this issue has been scheduled for April 1 at 9 a.m. , the statement said.
