Weekend sports events canceled by NMAA
October 7, 2020
The New Mexico Activities Association, the governing body for prep athletics and other extracurricular activities in New Mexico public schools, has told member schools all competitions scheduled for Saturday have been canceled.
The NMAA noted that public health orders, which limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer, remain in place and eliminate any feasibility for such events. The association said it is awaiting approval from Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham's office regarding events for the following week. Portales Athletic Director Mark Gallegos said he anticipates the NMAA will make some level of announcement regarding those events on Friday.
The Ram cross country teams had planned to host a three-team invitational, and several area volleyball teams had Saturday matches scheduled.
We'll provide more information as we receive it.
