Due to unusually snowy weather in February and March, most of the spring sports events have been canceled this season. Teams started the season with indoor practices, but all competitive events had been canceled for tennis, golf, track, baseball and softball as of March 15.

For tennis, the Lewiston-Clarkston Invite March 15 and 16 was canceled. Instead, the varsity team played at LHS against Mead High School March 15 and against Mt. Spokane High School March 16. These two matches were practice matches.

Softball and baseball have had all of their games canceled as well. The first scheduled softball game was March 21 at Airport Park against Lakeland High School. The first scheduled baseball game was March 22 at Church Field.

The Clearwater Invitational and the Sweeney Invitational for track were canceled as well. The track meet March 21 in Kamiah.

All of the snow has also made this season hard for the golfers as well, and there have been no golf tournaments yet. The first girls golf tournament is scheduled for Thursday, April 4, and the first boys golf tournament is scheduled for Friday, March 22.
