Southland Conference postpones SLU football


Southland Conference Postpones League Competition in Fall Sports

Football, volleyball, soccer, cross country seasons moved to spring

Story LinksFRISCO, Texas -- The Southland Conference Board of Directors has determined that league competition in the sports of football, volleyball, women's soccer and cross country
will be postponed from the fall semester with an intent to explore conference competition in the spring semester.

Meeting frequently in recent weeks, including Wednesday afternoon, presidents of the 13 Southland members also authorized planning for spring semester championship events for volleyball, soccer and cross country.

Although Southland institutions may choose to participate in limited fall competition, Southeastern Louisiana will not compete in any athletic competitions in the fall.

"The Southland Conference Board of Directors voted yesterday to postpone our fall competition season to the spring," Southeastern Director of Athletics Jay Artigues said.
"Southeastern Louisiana Athletics supports our league's decision. Our student-athletes' safety and well-being is first and foremost. We're prepared for an exciting and busy spring."

University President Dr. John Crain echoed Artigues' thoughts.

"We support the decision made by the Southland Conference Board of Directors," Crain said. "As president, the welfare of our student-athletes is my top priority, while also protecting the university as a whole."

It is expected that Southland athletic directors will immediately begin work with the Southland staff to determine spring competitive planning and other issues.

"The Board concluded that an entire fall sports season is not likely, and that a postponement to spring can provide the important opportunities our teams annually seek," Southland Conference Commissioner Tom Burnett added. "While disappointed that we won't be playing these sports in the Southland's 58th year of fall competition, we look forward to a unique spring season of athletics that also includes NCAA postseason opportunities."
