At an emergency meeting this morning, the New Mexico Activities Association’s board of directors voted to resume interscholastic athletic competition today. Teams can practice in preparation for the upcoming postseason, which for some sports will happen in very short order.
The NMAA, the organization which oversees most interscholastic athletic competition in the state, held its second webcast in three days this morning to announce the board of directors’ decision.
The NMAA suspended all athletic competition, including practices, in New Mexico Sunday after it was announced several public school districts in the southern part of the state were closing at least some of their schools due to concerns about the H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as swine flu.
Robert Zayas, assistant NMAA director, said that after association officials spoke with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and the Public Education Department, the proposal to lift the ban was brought to the board of directors.
“Kids can get back to practice and things are getting back to some kind of normalcy,” assistant director Mario Martinez said in the webcast.
Not a lot of time will be wasted, however.
