MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama High School Athletic
Association says it's shutting down its athletic events because of
reports of possible swine flu in the Huntsville area.

Concerns over the illness have led to the shutdown of some
schools around Huntsville.

Steve Savarese, the association's executive director, says he
hopes activities can be resumed by Tuesday.

The state track and field championships scheduled for May 1-2 at
Gulf Shores and Troy will be rescheduled. Savarese says all other
post-season activities scheduled through Monday are also being
postponed, including baseball, soccer, softball and golf.
