PIAA suspends winter postseason

Thursday, March 12, 2020 by The Press in Sports

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association has postponed winter sports playoffs for a minimum of two weeks, according to a statement it released today.

The PIAA basketball playoffs were heading into the quarterfinals this weekeend.

The PIAA Swimming Diving Championships, held at Bucknell University, started Wednesday with Class 3A events. Half of the 3A events were completed Wednesday, including boys diving, which was won by two-time state champ Brendan McCourt of Emmaus.

Preliminaries in Class 3A were held and completed Thursday morning when it was announced that girls diving will be the final event this week. The remainder of Class 3A finals and all of the Class 2A meet have been postponed.
