Big Sky Conference Cancels All Spring Sports & Competitions
Just days after canceling the remainder of their basketball championships, Big Sky Conference has now put an end to all spring sports and competitions for the season because of the Coronavirus.
The announcement comes from their website, which goes on to note that practices and workouts for all teams in every Big Sky sponsored sport have been suspended. Here's what Commissioner Tom Wistrcill said about the situation:
“This is undoubtedly the proper decision for the health and well-being of all involved with the Big Sky, even though it certainly is disappointing for many of our student-athletes and coaches. While play may be paused, we as a conference office and staff remain absolutely committed to supporting our student-athletes, coaches, and administrators every way possible during this unprecedented period in college athletics. We eagerly look forward to our teams returning to practice and competition when it’s deemed safe to resume those activities.”
Another decision will be made on April 3rd to determine the status of practices and workouts beyond that date.
