Four days after the Arizona Interscholastic Association’s Executive Board voted 5-4 to cancel winter sports, that group will meet again on Tuesday.
Since the vote to cancel because of surging COVID-19 infections that placed Arizona No. 1 in the nation, there has been a big backlash from the Arizona high school basketball, soccer and wrestling communities against the decision.
On Sunday, the AIA placed on its calendar a special Executive Board meeting for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
“The AIA should move for reconsideration. If adults are allowed to go to bars they can most certainly find the best medical advice to allow these kids to play.”
