COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) released new details this week regarding potential spring sports schedules and tournament information should schools reopen in early May.

OHSAA says that if school facilities do not reopen this school year, there will not be a spring sports season.

“If the Governor and Ohio Department of Health deem it safe to reopen school facilities in early May, then we will have a shortened spring sports season that extends into June,” said OHSAA Executive Director Jerry Snodgrass. “I commend our sports administration staff for putting the schedules together working on state tournament sites.”

The following dates are subject to change:
