BELMONT, N.C. -- In conjunction with a unanimous vote of Conference Carolinas presidents, Belmont Abbey and league members have made the difficult decision to suspend athletic competitions until further notice due to the evolving COVID-19 public health threat.
"We fully understand the ramifications of what this means for our student-athletes, coaches and administrators who put in so much hard work daily for their institutions, but we feel this is the right decision currently," Commissioner Chris Colvin said. "Our first priority is always the protection of our student-athletes along with our coaches and administrators. I would like to thank all of our presidents and administrators for working together to help us make this incredibly tough decision."
Earlier today, the NCAA made the decision to cancel all remaining winter and spring championships, which includes all winter NCAA Division II competitions in which Conference Carolinas institutions are presently competing.
