FLORENCE, Ala — All University of North Alabama athletic teams will be idle this weekend to ensure the safety of all student-athletes and athletic department personnel, UNA Athletic Director Mark Linder announced Thursday.

That announcement affects the UNA men's golf, baseball, softball, volleyball, cross country and men's and women's basketball teams that were all scheduled to compete this weekend, either at home or on the road.

The earliest that any UNA team will return to competition is Monday, February 22nd.

The UNA campus has been closed for the entire week due to the ice and snow dumped on the Shoals area by two winter storms and the majority of roads in the area are still impassable. That has prohibited UNA's team from being able to practice or undergo scheduled COVID-19 testing.

Some events may be rescheduled to a future date.
