TAMPA, Fla.—In conjunction with the conference’s Athletic Directors and Presidents, Sun Conference Commissioner Dustin Wilke announced that all Sun Conference competition will be suspended through Thursday, March 26.
This suspension goes into effect immediately for all sports and includes both conference and non-conference competition. The situation will be re-evaluated at the conclusion of the suspension. At that time, conference leaders will work to determine strategies and contingencies for the potential resumption of play and postseason schedules.
“The health and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans, and media will always be the highest priority in The Sun Conference,” said Wilke. “This pause in competition gives us a chance to more thoroughly evaluate the crisis at hand and ensure we are minimizing the safety risk for all parties.”
The Sun Conference advises all athletes, fans, and officials to follow the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control. More information can be found at www.cdc.gov.
