We knew it would happen and it felt like we were waiting forever for the announcement to come down. According to a statement released by The ACC, all athletic related activities have been suspended. This includes competition, formal and organized practice, recruiting, and participation in NCAA championships until further notice.
Vince Tyra and UofL released the following statement this afternoon:
“We are all experiencing an unprecedented time and as an athletic department, we are doing what we can to help mitigate the spread of this virus,” said Vince Tyra, UofL Vice-President/Director of Athletics. “I know our student-athletes will be disappointed about missing the competition, but their health and safety and that of our coaches, staff and fans is foremost in these decisions. We will continue to have regular communication with our university and ACC leadership, as well as guidance on a national level from the NCAA, as this continues to evolve.”
The Crunch Zone will continue to provide updates as they occur.
