NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — The Louisiana High School Athletic Association issued a statement Wednesday saying it fully supported the safe return of sports in the fall.

This comes after a state legislator called on education officials to cancel all fall sports for the safety of students.

LHSAA issued the following statement in regards to sports returning in the fall:

“Now, more than ever, we are reminded that our communities need high school sports. Interscholastic competition supports the physical, emotional and mental well-being of student-athletes across Louisiana.

“The LHSAA is fully committed to the safe return of high school athletics this fall.

“We encourage member schools to follow LHSAA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee Guidelines to ensure the safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and administrators. Reopening high school sports depends on all of us working together.”
