Sports suspensions continue

HONOLULU — The Hawai‘i High School Athletic Association and its member leagues will continue the indefinite suspension of all interscholastic competition and practices.

The announcement comes following the executive board meeting, Monday where the board met via video teleconferencing as part of a series of weekly briefings to continually evaluate the public health threat with the spring season of sports on the line for as many as 12,500 student-athletes statewide.

According to the HHSAA announcement, Chris Chun, the HHSAA executive director, has not ruled out a modified spring season. In order for that to become a possibility, Chun urges the public to heed government orders.

“The HHSAA and its member leagues are asking the public to please comply with government instructions in hopes that we can return to our normal daily activities sooner than what is currently being projected,” Chun said. “We don’t want to give up on the possibility of having a return to sports in the near future, but the leagues and the HHSAA are making the health and safety of our community its top priority.”

    C’mon, you’re not going to die without your high school sports, just like nobody would die without chess or bridge. Grow up, Hawaii.
