Based on the latest developments and continued spread of the Coronavirus, the Southeastern Conference today announced the suspension of regular season competition for teams in all sports on SEC campuses, as well SEC championship events, until March 30.
That includes spring sports such as baseball, softball, and rifle. It comes right after the SEC Basketball Tournament was canceled.
This does not apply to teams and individuals in NCAA competition, at this time.
It’s untelling how the SEC will resume spring sports, if at all. But because the baseball and softball seasons go into the summer, there’s certainly a chance they’ll both eventually resume, depending on how the virus outbreak and containment develops over the next month.
The SEC reminds everyone to be attentive to everyday preventive actions identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov).
