In tandem with Governor Walz’s announcement on April 23 to continue distance learning for the remainder of the school year, the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) has decided to cancel all spring athletics and fine arts for the remainder of their season. With this, all participation in an MSHSL event is prohibited.

 

With this announcement being put into place, spring activities are now technically “out of season”, meaning coaches cannot participate in any sport-specific instruction with their team(s). Due to this, many athletic directors are working with the MSHSL board to try and adjust this, including Eagan’s athletic director, Sandra Setter.

 

Due to the cancellation of all spring activities, the district is working on a plan to reimburse those who had already paid fees through FeePay. We are sad to see so many activities canceled, but are hopeful for the health of those around us, knowing that MSHSL made the right decision. More information can be found on the MSHSL website.
