ASUN Conference postponing fall sports due to coronavirus pandemic

The ASUN Conference says it is postponing all fall sports because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement from the ASUN's Presidents' Council on Friday also says that providing a spring season for men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer and volleyball is a priority.

"We're not in the position today to guarantee it will happen, but we can promise to make every effort to get there. We owe that to our student-athletes, our athletic departments and our institutions," ASUN commissioner Ted Gumbart said in a statement.

League schools may continue with such activities like training and practice in accordance with NCAA, local and state guidelines.

The nine-team league operates mostly in the Southeast and does not play football. It is formally known as the Atlantic Sun Conference.
