The winter sport tournaments were all scheduled to be held in Columbus this month, but were postponed indefinitely March 12. These were the first OHSAA cancellations since a few events were cancelled during World War II, officials said in the release.

Spring sports remain postponed and a mandatory no-contact period remains in effect through April 5 for all school-sponsored sports.
