A spring/summer sports season for the high school will begin April 5 and include girls soccer, track and field, baseball and boys tennis, according to an email from Athletics Director David Ribbens.

The Illinois High School Association Board of Directors released a statement outlining their plans for the spring season, which is set to include a state championship, on March 8. 

Players must complete three IHSA Medical forms in their SchoolDoc account by March 29 to be eligible to participate.

The new spring/summer season is three weeks later than in prior years, so the season could last until June 19, over a week after graduation.

“We’re thrilled we’re able to start our spring sports,” Mr. Ribbens said. “The fact that there will be a state championship series is important and that kids, particularly seniors, have a chance to end their career on the field with their teammates.”
