As a result, local universities here in the Lower Mainland have seen their spring sport seasons cut short and at SFU, they find themselves in a unique situation.
SFU is the lone Canadian university which can call itself a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the premier governing body of college sports in the United States.
“It’s definitely unprecedented times, it’s something that the NCAA has never done, and it’s something professional sports has never done outside of a planned work stoppage.” Jacob Hall, Sports Information Manager at SFU.
SFU saw their golf, track and field and softball seasons cut short due to the Coronavirus and with that comes a lot of uncertainty and of course, questions. What does this mean for the teams? The athletes?
