Bowie State, CIAA Cancel Fall Sports Amid Pandemic

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which includes Bowie State University, has decided to cancel fall sports out of concern for the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The conference, which consists mainly of historically Black colleges and universities, agreed to honor fall sports athletic scholarships despite the lack of competition.

“The safety, health and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff are non-negotiable,” said Clyde Doughty, Bowie State’s vice president of intercollegiate athletics and recreation, according to WJLA-TV (Channel 7). “Decisions of this magnitude are made with those factors as number one priority while looking to address current issues that have an adverse impact on all of us.”

The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, also largely made up of HBCUs, also agreed not to have a fall sports season.
