UIL puts Texas sports on hold for swine flu

Texas officials are postponing all high
school athletic competition 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.
All UIL academic competitions are postponed as well.
