All high school sports in Nevada will take place in early 2021, with no regular season running more than six weeks from start to finish.   The NIAA announced the adjustments to all schedules Thursday after working with school and athletic administrators from across the state.  At this time, there will be no state tournaments.

Effective immediately:
