MEC officially cancels rest of spring competitions

BRIDGEPORT — After a thorough review of public health recommendations regarding gatherings, decisions by states and municipalities, member campus decisions affecting student-athletes and in consideration of the NCAA’s decision to cancel all spring 2020 championships, the Mountain East Conference has announced the cancellation of all spring competitions and championships.

Additionally, the league will continue to suspend countable athletically related activities (CARA) until at least June 1.

The MEC Board of Directors approved the recommendation by the league’s committee of athletic administrators on Friday. The league had previously suspended competition and CARA indefinitely last week.

“While our hope was that we could avoid this conclusion to the 2020 spring season for our student-athletes, it became increasingly clear over the last week that this is the appropriate decision to make for the well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, campus communities and the public,” said Commissioner Reid Amos.

“Through this unprecedented and challenging time, the health and safety of our student-athletes has always been and will continue to be our primary concern.

“We look forward to the time when, with the support of doctors and public health officials, we can safely resume collegiate athletics.”
