WIAA won’t host tourneys at UW
The WIAA announced Wednesday it will not hold any postseason culminating events or state tournaments at the University of Wisconsin in Madison this fall.
State tournaments for girls golf, girls tennis and girls swim and dive are impacted by the announcement. Those sports’ state tournaments are usually in Madison.
The football state tournament is also held in Madison at Camp Randall Stadium, but the WIAA did not mention a plan for it in its Wednesday press release.
“We regret, given the situation here in Dane County related to COVID-19, it will not be feasible to host the WIAA State Tournaments this fall,” UW Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration John Horn said in the release. “We look forward to when the conditions of the pandemic improves and Dane County and campus policies change to allow larger, non-essential events.”
