Carson High School athletic director Blair Roman confirmed Thursday the fall high school sports season in the state of Nevada is being moved to the spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NIAA is expected to release a statement with the official announcement Thursday night or Friday.

The decision to move fall sports comes after spring sports were cut short, ending in the middle of March, soon after most seasons started.

Editor’s note: At 3:51 p.m. Thursday afternoon, the NIAA put out a release moving all in-season athletic competition to 2021. You can find the full breakdown of the new sports calendar here –
