The Virginia High School League on Friday announced that the spring sports season for its member schools has been put on hold until March 30.
The VHSL sponsors 10 boys and girls state championships in baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, tennis, and track and field.
The first official regular-season play date for the state's public schools was scheduled to be Monday when 64 varsity spring sports games or matches were to be played by Timesland schools.
However, the VHSL imposed authority over all its school divisions and mandated that no games be held for two weeks.
The VHSL will allow each school division to determine whether practices for spring sports will be held while the games are on hold.
The state's private schools -- with the exception of Liberty Christian -- are not bound by VHSL decisions.
Roanoke Valley Christian School decided later Friday to suspend sporting activities for the next two weeks. The school will not be in session during that time.
The athletic director at North Cross said that school's spring sports season will proceed as scheduled.
