TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Tuesday that it is canceling the remainder of the spring 2020 athletic schedule, impacting Florida State University's baseball and softball teams, among others.

After previously suspending all athletic activities indefinitely, the ACC made the decision to cancel all athletic related activities including all competition and practice through the end of the 2019-20 academic year.

The unanimous decision was made to mitigate the further spread of COVID-19. Each institution will continue to work in accordance with its respective university and state policies related to its individual campus decisions.

Our top priority remains the health and safety of our student-athletes as well as our fans, communities and the overall well-being of others during these uncharted times. We are particularly disappointed for our student-athletes and will continue to work with our membership to assess what is appropriate in the future.
John Swofford, ACC Commissioner
