Two days after announcing that the Southland Conference football season is still on track for it regularly scheduled season openers in early September, the league announced on Friday that the start of its volleyball and women’s soccer seasons were being pushed back to September starts as well.

“While I am certainly disappointed for our student-athletes, coaches and avid supporters of both of these outstanding programs, this is the right decision to make at this time,” said SFA Director of Athletics Ryan Ivey. “We continue to work diligently and exhaust every option that we have to be able to move forward with fall contests, but will only do so if it is safe and healthy for everyone involved. We will always have our student-athletes in the center of our decision-making process.”
