Ivy League Cancels Softball For Remainder Of 2020 Season
With a unanimous decision Wednesday, the eight Ivy League Presidents decided to cancel all spring sports for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
The decision, which impacts the eight Ivy League teams that participate in Division-I softball, came after several Ivy League institutions decided to keep their students home after spring break and hold classes virtually for the remainder of the semester.
The Ivy League also decided to cancel its men's and women's basketball tournaments due to the coronavirus outbreak. Individual schools that qualify for postseason play in winter sports are able to decide whether or not their student-athletes will participate in their respective championships.
No other Division-I conference, to date, has announced a decision like the Ivy League's. Softball America will continue to monitor this situation.
