Horizon League, Wright State respond to COVID-19

Competitions Suspended Indefinitely

INDIANAPOLIS/DAYTON – The Horizon League has joined conferences across the country in discussions regarding the novel coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

 

The Horizon League office released the following statement:

“Guided by its core value of student-athlete well-being and with the further developments in the outbreak of COVID-19, the Horizon League Council decided on Thursday, March 12 to indefinitely suspend all Horizon League-sponsored sport competition effective Friday, March 13.

Individual institutions will make decisions regarding practice and continuation of recruiting travel.

The Horizon League will continue to monitor this very fluid situation and will communicate information regarding any changes about competition or travel at a later date.

The Horizon League Council consists of the 10 member institutions’ athletic directors, chairpersons of the Senior Woman’s Administrators and Faculty Athletic Representatives and a student-athlete.”

 

The Wright State University Department of Athletics released the following statement:

“As always, Wright State Athletics is committed to the welfare and safety of our student-athletes. Their health and well-being, along with that of our coaches and staff, is paramount. Wright State is closely monitoring this rapidly evolving situation and continuing to follow direction from federal, state and local authorities to make decisions based on the most up-to-date information available.”

 

Earlier on Thursday, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors announced the cancelations of all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. This includes the 2020 National Invitation Tournament, which was slated to include the Wright State men’s basketball team. The NCAA coordinates and operates both the NIT and NCAA Tournament.

 

The Wright State University Department of Athletics is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on our communities. The health and well-being of our student-athletes is most important as we assess the near and long-term potential impacts. Wright State officials are closely monitoring for developments and will offer additional guidance and messaging as soon as it is available.
