RAWLINS – Add spring sports to the list of extracurricular activities impacted by the novel coronavirus. The word “impacted” is probably a slight understatement, though. The Wyoming High School Activities Association (WHSAA) announced on Tuesday its decision to officially cancel the spring sports season.
It may not have come as much of a shock after seeing the state basketball tournament stopped in its tracks along with the growing number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases in the state and across the globe. That said, there was a small glimmer of hope for spring sports to be resumed later in April for a modified season. Official practice had started for the Outlaws in early March, but was halted just one week later as the impact of the virus spread to Wyoming.
