SDHSAA postpones all State Basketball Tournaments

BB Tourneys Postponed

UNDATED – The COVID-19 virus has now led to the postponement of all State Basketball Tournaments in South Dakota.

The South Dakota High School Activities Association issued the following release:

At the request of Governor Noem, the remainder of the SDHSAA Class B Girls Basketball tournament is postponed. In addition, all SDHSAA state basketball tournaments for next weekend, along with the Visual Arts competition, are also postponed. The Student Council Convention, all Region music contests, and All-State Band scheduled for later this month are cancelled

This is a difficult decision and comes amid constant conversation and information sharing between the SDHSAA, the Governor’s Office, and the Department of Health. We will evaluate the future of the postponed events in concert with those same entities. The safety of everyone involved is our foremost concern, followed by exploring all options to provide the student-athlete with the opportunity to finish their season. 

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding in a very difficult time, and we apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
