The West Virginia University athletics department has announced that all intercollegiate athletics will be suspended through March 22.

In a press release, WVU athletic director said this is a necessary precaution to ensure everyone’s safety.

“I want our student-athletes, coaches and fans to be safe and for our department to follow the recommendations of the medical professionals,” Lyons said. “This is a necessary precaution to ensure the safety of our University, community, teams and support staff. The situation is fluid and we will monitor it daily to make the best decisions for all involved.”

The release states that no team or recruiting travel will be permitted and no official or unofficial visits will be allowed to campus. The department will reevaluate the situation “daily” up until March 22.

This suspension will impact WVU’s baseball, gymnastics, tennis, track and golf teams.

WVU baseball was set to play a three-game series in Lubbock, Texas against No. 2 Texas Tech this weekend. West Virginia was also scheduled to play a series against Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas from March 20-22.
