GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Conference Carolinas has made the difficult decision to cancel its spring championships and the remainder of its athletics competitions through the end of the 2019-20 academic year.
Originally Conference Carolinas desired to keep open the possibility of returning to athletics competition and host its spring championships in April, but it has been determined that this is no longer viable due to the continued evolution of the COVID-19 public health threat.
"All involved in Conference Carolinas have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to see if there was any way that we could continue athletics competition this academic year, but we believe it is not in our best interest for numerous reasons," Commissioner Chris Colvin said. "Once again, we understand the ramifications of what this means for our student-athletes, coaches and administrators. However, the growing scale of the pandemic coupled with the NCAA's recent decision to grant an additional season of eligibility to spring sports student-athletes changes the dynamic for our member institutions and student-athletes."
Last week, the NCAA made the decision to cancel all of its remaining winter and spring championships.
The safety and well-being of Conference Carolinas student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans are always of the utmost importance. Conference Carolinas will continue to monitor all of the important and relevant information on the COVID-19 pandemic.
