AUSTIN, Texas(AP)—Texas officials are postponing all public high school athletic and academic competitions until May 11 because of the swine flu outbreak.
The move suspends the baseball season and eliminates the regional track championships, said University Interscholastic League executive director Charles Breithaupt. He said UIL officials acted 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.
