PHOENIX — Wrestling sectionals across Arizona have been postponed for the weekend due to an outbreak of a skin disease and will be re-visited on Monday.
A significant amount of schools were affected by a skin issue. Once the Arizona Interscholastic Association was made aware of the problem and that it wasn’t an isolated incident they consulted with health officials.
“Until we can identify exactly what is going on and ascertain the extent of it we postponed the sectionals on [Saturday] and on Monday we will be consulting with public health officials and looking at what our next steps will be in order to maintain and ensure the safety of the kids and the people involved in the tournament,” Chuck Schmidt, Chief Operating Officer of the AIA, said.
The AIA is continuing to gather information and will have no more updates until Monday.
