First-Year Head Coach Adler Augustin Reacts to Postponed Volleyball Season

Sports

IRVING, Texas – The American Athletic Conference announced today it will postpone all competition and conference championships in the sports of men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball until the spring of 2021 to align with the NCAA championship season. A decision regarding cross country competition will be forthcoming pending further NCAA clarification.
 
The decision was approved by the conference’s athletic directors and senior woman administrators following the NCAA Division I Board of Directors’ confirmation that NCAA Division I fall championships would move to the spring.
 
“We remain committed to providing our student-athletes a quality experience and competing at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics,” American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco said. “We were prepared to conduct competition in the fall in men’s and women soccer and women’s volleyball, but moving to the spring was in the best interest of our student-athletes as it will align our schedules to allow our teams to compete for national championships.”
 
The American will announce the spring regular season and championship formats and schedules after the NCAA Division I Council clarifies the revised playing and practice season and championship formats.
