LOCK HAVEN, Pa. (KDKA) – The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference voted on Tuesday to suspend all conference athletic events through the fall semester.

“The entire conference has worked hard these last few months to prepare for the return of sports to our campuses beginning this fall,” said PSAC Commissioner Steve Murray. “However, it has become apparent that the safe conduct of sports under the guidelines of social distancing is untenable for our members. We cannot place our student-athletes at greater risk than the general student body. Despite our planning and collective efforts, it has become clear that we are not able to do so.”

PSAC has already taken a full review of its ability to shift fall sports to the spring semester and said they are planning to do so if a return to play is safe.

Locally, this includes schools such as Slippery Rock, CalU, and IUP.
