The New Mexico Activities Association doesn’t want to call off the spring state championships, but didn’t take cancellation off the table, either.
The NMAA, the governing body of most high school interscholastic sports in the state, held a webcast Monday discussing its decision to suspend all sporting activities in New Mexico, a decision that came down Sunday, as well as its tentative plans to reschedule many statewide events.
Gary Tripp, NMAA’s executive director, said in the webcast that the cancellation of the spring sports championship events was a possibility if schools in the southern part of the state remain closed longer than this week.
This weekend, school districts in Socorro, Lordsburg, Deming and Carlsbad announced they would close at least some of their schools this week because of a possible outbreak of the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu.
The decision caught many by surprise, including officials at Los Alamos High School.
LAHS athletic director Vicki Nelms said Tuesday it’s been difficult trying to explain to people how the situation escalated to this point and where LAHS and other schools go from here.
