GEORGIA (WTXL) — The Georgia High School Association is postponing the State Literary competitions and is recommending that all schools suspend spring sports activities until further notice.

The State Literary competitions were scheduled for March 14 and March 21.

“The regular season belongs to the schools themselves,“ said Dr. Robin Hines, Executive Director of the GHSA. “We can only recommend that they suspend playing. The final decision will rest with the local school systems, but we hope they heed the Governor’s and the GHSA’s recommendations.”

The GHSA State Literary meets are expected to be rescheduled for a future date. Officials say the situation with the remaining spring sports has yet to be determined.

“We will definitely suspend for the next two weeks, as the Governor recommended,” said Hines. “By close of business on Friday, March 27th, we will issue an update. We hate to have to make this call, but we must do what is in the best interest of our student-athletes and fans.”
