Allegheny College Director of Athletics and Recreation Bill Ross announced the institution’s plans for the Gators’ winter and spring varsity teams to return to intercollegiate competition during the spring semester.
Men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s golf, baseball and softball are scheduled to compete in their regular playing season. Men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s swimming and diving, which usually participate during the winter season, will also participate in a limited number of contests this semester.
“We are committed to the health and safety of our student-athletes, our opponents, and the campus community,” Ross in a press release. “All of our protocols have been developed with guidance from local and national health organizations and the NCAA and North Coast Athletic Conference.”
