MACON, Ga. — The Georgia High School Association is recommending that all local school systems suspend their spring sporting events.
Dr. Robin Hines, Executive Director of the GHSA explains, "We can only recommend that they suspend playing. The final decision will rest with the local school systems, but we hope they heed the Governor's and the GHSA's recommendations."
The GHSA has made the decision to postpone the State Literary competitions that were scheduled for Mar. 14 and Mar. 21.
Hines says that a decision about remaining spring sports has not yet been made.
The GHSA will issue an update by Friday, Mar. 27, which would be the conclusion of the two-week suspension recommended by Gov. Brian Kemp.
