The outbreak of the Swine Flu in Texas has prompted Texas officials to postpone all athletic competition until May 11th. The move suspends the baseball, softball season and eliminates the regional track championships.
The UIL officials ted on the recommendation of public health officials.
The state golf and tennis championships are scheduled to begin May 11. The state track meet, one of the largest high school track and field competitions in the country, remains scheduled for May 13-14. But it will require shuffling the schedule significantly.
All UIL academic competitions are postponed as well.
