The ASUN Conference has announced it is canceling the remainder its spring sports competition season due to the growing concerns related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
After consulting with its Presidents' Council this afternoon, the ASUN Conference has announced it is canceling the remainder its spring sports competition season due to the growing concerns related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Yesterday, the ASUN Conference announced it had suspended all competition through at least April 5. The decision gave conference officials the time needed to further evaluate the proper decision for welfare of its student-athletes and coaches.
Today's decision by the ASUN Conference brings to a close the competitive seasons for Liberty's baseball, softball, men's golf, men's tennis, women's tennis, women's lacrosse and men's and women's outdoor track & field programs.
The ASUN Conference also announced its Presidents' Council supports granting member schools the discretion to resume practice activities under their own campus policies related to face to face activity. Continued best possible care and supervision for student-athlete health remains at the heart of all ASUN decisions.
"The rapidly evolving and quickly escalating response to the corona virus has regrettably led to a premature conclusion to our spring seasons," said Ian McCaw, Liberty University Director of Athletics. "We will pursue an additional year of eligibility for senior student-athletes who were unable to complete their seasons due to cancellations. In addition, we are working closely with our coaches and student-athletes to best serve them during this very difficult time."
The Liberty Athletics Ticket Office will contact all baseball season ticket holders and single-game ticket purchasers in regards to tickets purchased for the Flames 14 remaining home baseball games.
