COVID-19 has impacted the sporting world in proportions never before seen. From small colleges and universities to large, from NCAA Division I all the way down to youth sports, its uncertainty has dismantled our normal processes and procedures to the point where our "new normal" is changing every day. We are constantly adjusting and creating new safety methods to place the health and safety of each member of the Owls family at the very forefront of our daily operations. Make no mistake, elite health and safety standards have always been and will continue to be a driving force in our athletic program. However, this current world-wide pandemic has stretched the boundaries of intercollegiate sports from a wellbeing standpoint to the limit, with no clear end or answer in sight.
