New Prairie baseball coach Mark Schellinger was happy to see the IHSAA reduce its practice restrictions on players.

Coaches and athletes are hanging on to a thread of hope that there will be a spring sports season of some kind, and the Indiana High School Athletic Association left that window cracked Thursday in announcing a pair of adjustments to its practice requirements.

In an email to athletics directors, the IHSAA said, “If we are able to resume on May 1, the number of separate days of practice necessary to participate in any interscholastic event, including contests shall be set at five,” the association said.
