Posted Mar 16, 2020 3:13 AM

The Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) has suspended all spring sports and activities through March 22.

In a message on the KSHSAA website, the organization wrote, "Effective Monday, March 16, all spring sports and activities are suspended through Sunday, March 22. This includes cancellation of all practices and competitions for this week. This prohibition is consistent with KSDE and governmental guidance and may be extended, should conditions warrant. Please note spring sports team members are prohibited from club or outside team participation and practice during this period. Not only would such outside participation be contrary to handbook rule, it would be contrary to the very reason activities are cancelled during the time we seek to mitigate potential transfer of the contagion."

NFL players OK labor deal, including 17-game season

By a close vote, NFL players have approved a new labor agreement with the league that features a 17-game regular season.

It also includes higher salaries, increased roster sizes and larger pensions for current and former players.

The deal runs through the 2030 season. It was accepted by the 32 team owners last month.

Ratification by membership of the NFL Players Association required a simple majority. There could be lasting resentment among union members, given how close the vote was.

Soon after the union announced the results, it began discussing with the league Wednesday's planned opening of the 2020 NFL business season. A delay is possible given league restrictions on travel as a safeguard against the new coronavirus.
