MIAA Votes To Extend Spring Sports Tournaments

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) voted Wednesday to approve a spring sports tournament.

The MIAA Board of Directors decided to create an extended postseason tournament—which will include a state semifinal and final rounds.

“I’m glad that the collective work of our board of directors, COVID-19 task force and tournament management committee has allowed for us to not only have an upcoming spring season, but one which will provide for a sectional and statewide tournament,” MIAA President Jeffrey Granatino said.

“It has not been an easy task but it is one that has always the best interests of our student-athletes in mind.”

The opt-in date is June 2, and the board created plenty of flexibility in regards to how each school would like to participate.

Teams that opt-in do not have a minimum number of games to play.

Those who are eliminated can also elect to schedule more games.

This postseason tournament will begin June 19.
