Patriot League Announces Cancellation of Spring 2020 Season
BALTIMORE – The Patriot League Council of Presidents announced this morning it has made the difficult decision to cancel all spring athletics practices and competitions through the remainder of the academic year.
"This is an unprecedented time for the Patriot League and for Greyhounds Athletics," said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola University Maryland. "Our student-athletes and athletic programs are a source of pride for Loyola University Maryland—and will continue to be. My thoughts are with our student-athletes, families, coaches, athletics staff, and fans who have been so looking forward to an exceptional spring season."
The decision will be effective Monday, March 16. An announcement about this weekend’s competitions will be forthcoming.
Text of the Patriot League announcement:
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Recognizing that the health and safety of our students and broader communities is our priority, and based on the ongoing spread of Covid 19 (2019 novel Coronavirus), the Patriot League Council of Presidents has made the difficult and challenging decision to cancel all spring athletics practice and competition through the remainder of the academic year.
The majority of Patriot League institutions have announced a temporary or semester-long transition to remote learning. While we recognize the disappointment that will be felt by our student-athletes, coaches, and communities, a continuation of spring seasons is untenable.
The decision will be effective Monday, March 16.
Individual institutions will decide the NCAA championship participation status of winter teams and student-athletes who have qualified.
