Another Capital Region College Won’t Play Fall Sports
Earlier this week, the Liberty League announced that all fall sports would not be played. All sports events can not begin until after December 31st, 2020. The statement from the league is below
With institutions and conferences, both regionally and nationally, making the difficult decision to cancel fall competition, our announcement to cancel Liberty League competition and championships will likely not come as a surprise,” said King. “Nevertheless, I understand the deep disappointment that many of our student-athletes, who have trained and prepared for competition, will feel with this decision. Moving forward, our members will continue to work together to provide meaningful athletic opportunities to support our student-athletes
The decision effects multiple colleges in the Capital Region. Skidmore's soccer, volleyball and field hockey teams will not play in the fall. The basketball's season for both men and women along with hockey are currently on pause. RPI and Union had already announced earlier this summer that they would not be participating in fall sports this year.
