The Illinois High School Association is officially suspending winter sports and activities. The decision came after a vote by the board yesterday at a special virtual meeting and takes effect today. The IHSA based the move on new COVID-19 mitigations across the state announced by Governor J.B. Pritzker. The board intends to review the status of winter sports and activities in mid-December.
