Burke County Public Schools has received word from the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) that due to the threat from COVID-19, they have decided to postpone the 2020 Men’s and Women’s Basketball State Championships indefinitely. Burke County Public Schools is in full support of this decision.

“As much as we would like this opportunity for our student-athletes, coaches, and their communities, we know that ultimately any decision we make must err on the side of caution,” said Commissioner Que Tucker of the NCHSAA.

The NCHSAA Board of Directors also moved to suspend interscholastic athletics beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020 through Monday, April 6, 2020. The NCHSAA Board of Directors will assess this situation regularly over the next few weeks. This includes all workouts, skill development, practices and contests.
