UPDATE: PSU Athletics expands suspension of spring sports to include all programs

Team activities banned for all 24 sports through Apr. 6 

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State University Director of Athletics Kim Bownes announced today that the department has expanded its suspension of team activities to include all athletics programs and, in conjunction with the University's statement today, has been extended through April 6.

            Student-athletes are encouraged to stay home until April 6 and access their academic work online beginning Wednesday (Mar. 18). Any student-athletes who must return to campus may do so beginning Sunday (Mar. 15) and will have access to food service.

            All teams and student-athletes are banned from any athletic related activities, including but not limited to; practices, competitions, weight training, team workouts, captain's practices and team meetings.

            The Physical Education Center (PE Center) will remain closed through April 6 and, as such, there will be no access to the Vailas Performance Center (weight room) or PSU Natatorium until that date. Likewise, ALLWell North will also be closed and all public walking sessions have been canceled for the foreseeable future.

            Due to logistical reasons, PSU's baseball and women's lacrosse teams, currently playing in Florida and Colorado, will complete their trips as originally planned.

            Plymouth State athletics is continuing to monitor the situation and will reevaluate its policy as new information becomes available in the coming days and weeks.

            For information regarding the university's response please refer to the PSU website, www.plymouth.edu.
