From SwimSwam coverage:

The New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) announced yesterday that it will be canceling its winter 2021 state championships due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The cancellation of winter championships has an effect on boys swimming & diving, as well as bowling, boys and girls basketball, competitive cheerleading, gymnastics, indoor track & field, ice hockey, skiing, and wrestling.

Although the championships are being canceled, low-risk and moderate-risk sports are still going to be allowed to start and compete their seasons as scheduled. High-risk sports, namely basketball, boys lacrosse, competitive cheerleading, football, ice hockey, volleyball, and wrestling are being postponed until spring. Since some of those sports, such as volleyball and football are traditionally fall sports, they’ve now been postponed for a second time.

Now what?

Coaches and teams can make plans now to come to St. Petersburg, Florida for a championship meet experience in March, 2021.
