In a recently-released statement, the Horizon League, which the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is a member of, decided to delay the start of fall competition for all sports, with the understanding that if competition occurs, it will not begin before Oct. 1.
There won’t be any sports played at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay until at least October.
The Horizon League announced Thursday it will delay the start of fall competition for all sports because of the coronavirus pandemic. It includes all exhibition, conference and nonconference games.
The sports impacted at UWGB include cross country, soccer, volleyball, golf and softball.
Golf and softball have fall competition but do not have a Horizon League championship season until the spring.
The Horizon League Council said it will continue to be guided by the health, safety and well-being of student-athletes, coaches and staff.
“A delay to no earlier than Oct. 1 allows Green Bay to focus on ensuring return to competition protocols uphold the league’s principle of safety and can be reasonably implemented based on evolving information relative to testing, contact tracing, health care capacity and city and state guidelines,” UWGB athletic director Charles Guthrie said.
Fall sports at UW-Milwaukee and UW-Green Bay will be delayed when school resumes in the fall following a decision by the Horizon League, of which both universities are members.
“The Green Bay women’s basketball team has been picked as a co-favorite to win the Horizon League title for the 12th straight time in a preseason poll released by the league Thursday.” More via UWGB picked to win Horizon League | Daily Press.
