Minnesota State High School League leadership brought some national perspective to the state of spring activities during a Thursday video conference call.

“Thirty state associations around the country look like we do,” associate director Bob Madison told the more than 200 call participants. “They are currently in suspended mode or postponement mode, while 21 state associations have said, ‘There is no spring season.’ ”

The tally of 51 includes the 50 states and the District of Columbia State Athletic Association.

Thursday marked almost four full weeks since Minnesota’s spring activities were suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The league remains hopeful about resuming the season while acknowledging the growing logistical challenges.
