The Minnesota State High School League’s Board of Directors has approved having state tournaments at the end of of the winter sports seasons.
Obviously, there will be some changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and consolation games will not be held this year.
State tournaments are set for March and April in Nordic and alpine skiing, dance, boys swimming and diving, wrestling, gymnastics, hockey at Xcel Energy Center, and basketball at Target Center.
“The League is thrilled that students will have the opportunity to have a culminating state tournament experience,” “Providing a championship event in every activity is part of Minnesota’s rich tradition of co-curricular opportunities. Safety is, and needs to continue to be, a focus as the League and its partners continue to work on these projected postseason concepts. We are strongly encouraged that we will be back together in a state tournament environment. These are incredibly special experiences and we are looking forward to celebrating with the participants and our member schools.”
