VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota has made the decision to cancel all spring sports through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year and all USD-hosted events through April 30 to mitigate the risk of exposure to COVID-19. This decision is based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and recommendations from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
USD’s announcement is in accordance to the Summit League’s statement today that spring sports have been cancelled, including all non-conference, conference and championship competitions.
If you have questions regarding an event, please contact the event organizer to learn more. Events may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Keeping our community safe remains at the forefront of every decision we make,” said USD President Sheila K. Gestring. “We know how much time and effort each of you have spent in planning and preparing for the many events that take place at USD, and that hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. We will continue to work towards solutions for online components and together we will weather this storm.”
