NEW ORLEANS – The University of New Orleans has announced the postponement of all scheduled fall contests to the spring due to continuing concerns related to COVID-19. With the number of coronavirus cases surpassing 5 million in the U.S., the Privateers leadership team, in conjunction with the Southland Conference, voted to take this action with the health and safety of its student-athletes, coaches and communities as its top priority.
DR. JOHN NICKLOW, PRESIDENT
“After several calls with the Board of Directors of the Southland Conference and multiple meetings on campus, we made an extremely difficult decision to postpone the fall season. The health and safety of our student-athletes and coaches are of paramount importance. We thought it was best to postpone the season now to provide academic flexibility for this semester.”
