In Case You Missed It

The Missouri high school spring sports season will be delayed until at least the beginning of May due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Most local schools have canceled classes until May 1, and will re-evaluate the situation as it gets closer to that date. The best case scenario would have high school sports resume soon after.
