All state and section championship bracket contests will still be played, but not consolation or third place games for girls state basketball. The adapted floor hockey tournament is also canceled.

MSHSL Executive Director Erich Martens said, “While the changes in our tournaments are unfortunate, we recognize that a collective community response is critical to supporting the health of our communities and mitigating the spread of COVID-19. The MSHSL intends to do everything possible to allow participating students who have earned the opportunity to compete in these special tournaments to do so. We will continue to follow guidance from the  Minnesota Department of Health, The Centers for Disease Control, and the State of Minnesota and will work with League member schools to finish this winter season in the best way possible.”
