CHAPEL HILL — Due to the threat from COVID-19 (otherwise known as the coronavirus), the North Carolina High School Athletic Association made the decision on Thursday afternoon to postpone the 2020 boy’s and girl’s basketball State championships indefinitely.

“As much as we would like this opportunity for our student-athletes, coaches, and their communities, we know that ultimately any decision we make must err on the side of caution,” said NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker.

The Board of Directors also moved to suspend interscholastic athletics beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 13, through at least Monday, April 6.

The NCHSAA Board of Directors will assess this situation regularly over the next few weeks. This includes all workouts, skill development, practices and contests.

Check back throughout the next couple of weeks for updates in regards to when games will be rescheduled and more.
