    AUGUSTA — The Maine Principals’ Association announced in a March 13 news release the start of spring sports will be delayed. 

    In response to recommendations from Governor Janet Mills to not have mass gatherings, the MPA Board of Directors and Interscholastic Management Committee voted Friday morning to delay practices for the high school spring sports season until April 27. 

    “We will continue to monitor the situation and will make the appropriate changes as needed to ensure the safety of all students,” the MPA said in a statement. 

    Around the end of April, committee chairs and league directors will meet to discuss whether spring sports should be held and what a modified schedule would look like. 

    Though middle school sports are not governed by the MPA, the Central Maine League and Busline League will follow the MPA’s guidelines and decisions.
