KSHSAA cancels spring activities ending season for 8 Emporia High teams Featured

With Kansas Governor Laura Kelly announcing that all schools k-12 will be closed for the remainder of the school Year. The Kansas State High School Activities Association has announced that they are cancelling all spring championships, competitions, and festivals for the remainder of this school year.

KSHSAA Statement:

The KSHSAA is committed to the safety of our student-participants and the health of our school communities. Accordingly, in response to Governor Kelly’s Executive Order regarding the closure and cessation of in-person instruction in all Kansas schools through May 29, 2020, the KSHSAA is cancelling all spring championships, competitions, and festivals for the remainder of this school year. The KSHSAA recognizes the value of school activities for all students and school communities, but the current situation does not permit the opportunity for school activities to take place in a manner that is consistent with the very reason school activities exist.

As a commitment to the health of Kansas students and communities, the best decision and only reasonable response is to cancel the regular season and post-season spring activity season. We all have an important responsibility to minimize community transmission as we embrace suggested precautions regarding COVID-19.  As educators, the primary focus for our students and families is the health and well-being of each student. This action by the KSHSAA supports that effort across Kansas.

The KSHSAA strongly discourages non-school activity participation at this time in an effort to mitigate the community transmission of the coronavirus. All CDC, KDHE and KSDE recommendations for preventing disease transmission should be followed at this time for any non-school activity in which a student participates.

This ends the season for all 8 spring sports at Emporia High school.

Softball Coach Troy Chapman was looking forward to the season. The Lady Spartans returned most of the players from last years team that qualified for State.

The Emporia High boys golf team returned all 6 golfers who qualified for State. Coach Rick Eckert says he is disappointed for the team.

The Emporia High boys tennis team returns 2 players that qualified for State. Coach Matt Irby said the players had put in a lot of work for the season.

The girls and boys track and field teams had a combined 17 athletes that qualified for state returning.

The girls swim team also had state qualifiers returning.

The baseball team returned 7 seniors from a team that advanced to the regional championship game. Coach Anthony Markowitz said they were off to a good start.

Coach Markowitz says they have to stay optimistic.

The Emporia High girls soccer team was looking forward to an improved season.
