A week after students marched on the campus of the CIAC to protest the decision to cancel the winter state tournaments, the CIAC decided that it was not prepared to cancel the 2020 spring sports season.

Here are some of the responses
CIAC is taking a broad wait-and-see approach with its hopes to conduct a spring sports. Pretty much “all options on table.”
I mean, this early in the game, couldn’t really expect anything else.
Everything depends on schools reopening, anyway.

“Suspended” is better then cancelled!! If you want a spring season kids (and parents), adhere to the social distancing guidelines. That’s the ONLY way you’ll have school, a season or graduation!!! #stayhome and work on your own. #ctbase @amityathletics https://t.co/ii5RP0e7hx

In a time of what seems to be constant negativity, here’s some positive news. The main message here is to continue social distancing so we can minimize this virus and continue on with our lives. Hopefully we will be back on the diamond soon ⚾️ https://t.co/gJYB49h3ic
