BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. – Many student-athletes are disappointed with the new COVID-19 restrictions, especially the Marian Mustang volleyball team.
The Mustangs knocked off the No. 1 team in the State-Mercy to win the regional title. It’s the same team that beat the Mustangs last playoffs.
They thought they might play the quarterfinal round on Tuesday night, but the decision was made by the Michigan High School Athletic Association to suspend all tournaments immediately.
The team will return to virtual training. The hope is after the three weeks are over they can finish what they started.

Michigan high school sports put on hold as part of new COVID-19 restrictions
High School volleyball, swimming and football have all been put on hold in hopes of slowing the spread of COVID-19.
Coaches around Metro Detroit are still holding out hope they’ll be able to pick up right where they left off. High school football teams were just three wins away from becoming state champions, but the games are now in question as COVID-19 restrictions postpone the season.
“I think this is much different than where we were at last March and April,” Michigan High School Athletic Association Executive Director Mark Uyl said. “This was a new phenomenon for all of us.”
