As you probably already know, the UIL has temporarily suspended all UIL events through March 29 (the press release can be read below). A decision will be made in the next 2 weeks on activities beyond March 29 by the UIL. Where it is disappointing we can’t watch our athletes compete, please understand the UIL has our students best interest at heart. We will continue to monitor UIL press releases and will share details as they are released. In the mean time, we ask that you continue to encourage the students that are missing out on their extracurricular activities and be supportive of them. Where it disappoints us as fans and parents to not be able to watch them compete, it will only hurt them more if we aren’t supportive of them in this difficult time.
We love our Blue Tigers and their coaches…GO BIG BLUE!!!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN — To support the health and safety of our students and communities, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) is suspending all UIL sanctioned contests due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Texas. Effective March 16, all UIL interscholastic competition is suspended through March 29.
Rehearsals and practices may be held at the discretion of the local school district.
“We are urging our member schools and their communities to stay vigilant and take every possible precaution to remain safe and healthy,” said UIL Executive Director Dr. Charles Breithaupt. “We understand there is a lot of uncertainty during this unprecedented time. Please know UIL leadership is working diligently to adjust to this rapidly evolving situation and will share updates as soon as possible.”
As this is a fluid situation, the UIL will continue to follow the direction of state and local officials to monitor this situation and will make additional announcements as needed. Please continue to check the UIL website and social media accounts for further updates.
