The Colorado High School Activities Association has delayed the start of Season B as a result of spiking COVID-19 cases across the state and country.

The state competitions for boys and girls basketball, wrestling and girls swimming and diving will be the weekend of March 20.

The CHSAA office will meet with the governor's office to discuss this possibility no earlier than Jan. 14.

Seasons C and D will be shortened by one week.

Season C will now begin with first practices on March 15 and first competitions on March 22. Season C will end May 8.

Season D first practices will begin May 3, with first competitions on May 10. It will end on schedule on June 26.
