Carnegie Mellon University announces it will not take part in fall sports

Carnegie Mellon University announced Wednesday afternoon it will not participate in sports this fall. “Over the past few months, we have explored every possible avenue for a safe return to play,” said Director of Athletics Josh Centor in an email message to Carnegie Mellon student-athletes. “In the message that I wrote to you last month, I noted that the health and safety of our students, staff and community members are at the forefront of every decision we make. With that as our guiding principle, we cannot appropriately return to sport at this time.” The university said the fall decision includes participation in men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis, football and volleyball. The university said decisions on winter and spring sports have not yet been made. Carnegie Mellon’s Return to Play Task Force, which includes university administrators and team physicians, will continue to meet and plan for the future.“In the coming weeks, I will share more information for how we will engage our teams throughout the semester. We will be active, we will learn, we will find ways to come together,” Centor said. “Our staff will do everything we can to find opportunities for our student-athletes to pursue their passion for team and sport this coming semester, despite these unprecedented and disappointing circumstances.”Click here for more information from Carnegie Mellon University.
