FALL SPORTS BOUNCED AT LA SALLE AND ST. JOE’S —FOR NOW!

By Amy Madison

The Atlantic 10 Conference says that the health risk of conducting sports in the fall would be too great, but kept open the possibility that a seasonal schedule could be staged should the COVID-19 pandemic ease enough by mid-September.

Which means no fall sports at LaSalle and St.Joseph’s.

While admitting the option is “a slim opportunity,” conference commissioner Bernadette McGlade said that it’s one “that we felt like we should keep on the table” for the A-10′s 14 member schools, including La Salle and St. Joseph’s.

“Any decisions out of that time will be decided by the status of COVID and all the national and regional bearing as it relates to the pandemic,” McGlade said in a conference call. “There would have to be a significant upward trend in all of the impacts that we’re seeing right now with regard to securing not only the health and the safety of our student-athletes but our campus community as well.”
