The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union’s Board of Directors approved the moving of the swimming and diving and volleyball postseasons beginning with the 2020-21 school year at its October meeting.
This move stems from the implementation of recommendations from the educational-based activities Ad-Hoc Committee, which was formed to review the activities calendar of the IGHSAU, Iowa High School Athletic Association, Iowa High School Speech Association & Iowa High School Music Association.
