High school spring sports will have a delayed start and are set to begin next month.
The Michigan High School Athletic Association announced Monday that spring sports will start on March 22. The MHSAA council approved an adjusted schedule with practice starting March 22 and competition starting March 26. The schedule delays the start by one week to allow winter sports to finish.
The decision by the council was based on a survey of MHSAA high schools, which 74 percent of schools who responded said they wanted to delay spring sports by a week because of the delayed start of winter sports.
All spring tournament dates will stay the same with postseason for baseball, softball and girls soccer ending on June 19. The council also eliminated the preseason downtime restriction for this year.
