OHIO, USA — The Ohio High School Athletic Association announced Thursday that all winter tournaments will be postponed until further notice.
Tournaments include boys basketball regionals and state wrestling, ice hockey and girls basketball.
The move comes a day after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine advised spectator restrictions on all indoor sports and just hours after several major conferences including the MAC, SEC and Big Ten, canceled tournaments of their own.
