*** A message from the MSHSL on the 2020 Season***
The Minnesota State High School League continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the most current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Office of the Governor. The MSHSL supports the efforts of all students, staff and communities in limiting the spread of COVID-19. The goal of the MSHSL is to be responsive to member schools and keep future participation options open for the spring activity season. Effective immediately and continuing until the Governor of Minnesota has lifted his school closure declaration: • All participation in MSHSL spring activities at all member schools is suspended. • Participation includes, but is not limited to, competitions, training, practices, scrimmages, and contests. Pending a reopening of schools by the Governor, return to participation protocols will be determined and communicated by the MSHSL Board and MSHSL staff.Welcome to the home page of the Tartan Girls Lacrosse team!DUE TO THE MANDATE FROM THE MSHSL ALL SPRING SPORTS ARE CURRENTLY POSTPONED.
