EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan High School Athletic Association took no action on possibly rescheduling fall championship tournaments in football, swimming and volleyball.

The group’s representative council met Wednesday and will gather again on Dec. 16.

The MHSAA had planned to finish the tournaments by the end of December.

But Gov. Gretchen Whitmer this week extended a ban on sports and in-person high school classes through at least Dec. 20 to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

Director Mark Uyl said the MHSAA had proposed games without spectators and other steps to keep the venues safe.
