DENVER (KDVR) — The Summit League, which includes the University of Denver, announced on Monday that all fall sports have been postponed until spring due to COVID-19.
Competition and championships of men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball are the fall sports affected. Karlton Creech, Athletic Director for DU, made a statement about the postponement via Twitter:
“The health and safety of our students, and the DU community as a whole is our top priority. There’s nothing we would love more than to see our programs back in competition, but I believe the decision by the Summit League and its member institutions’ leaders is in the best interest of our student-athletes’ long term future. This unprecedented time is difficult now, but I’m confident it will bring us all closer as we get through this together.”DU Athletic Director, Karlton Creech
