The move to cancel practice through March 27 comes after Gov. Tim Walz closed schools for eight days to help combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

When Minnesota schools shut down on Wednesday, all spring sports practice will cease as well.

After Gov. Tim Walz on Sunday ordered that schools be closed at least eight days — through March 27 — the Minnesota State High School League said “there will be no MSHSL activities and athletics at any member school’’ throughout that period.

“This includes all participation including, but not limited to training, practices, scrimmages and contests,’’ the league said.
