The Minnesota State High School League will hold a special meeting Monday to reconsider fall sports.

MSHSL announced last Wednesday that its Board of Directors President, Blaine Novak, called a special meeting for 9 a.m. on Monday to reconsider the placement of fall activities seasons.

The meeting will be held virtually.

The announcement came on the same day the Big Ten Conference announced it reconsidered and will hold a shortened football season this year.
