In light of the tragedy on April 16, the Virginia Tech Athletics Department has made the following decisions regarding its athletics teams:
The remainder of Tech’s spring football session, including Saturday’s Spring Game, has been canceled. Tech was scheduled to practice Wednesday and Friday before holding the Spring Game on Saturday.
In addition to Tuesday’s softball game between Virginia Tech and East Tennessee State, Wednesday’s non-conference baseball game at English Field between Tech and William & Mary has also been canceled.
The athletics department has also decided that the three home ACC events - baseball, softball and lacrosse - will go on as scheduled. The baseball team will host the University of Miami on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The lacrosse team hosts Maryland on Saturday at noon and the softball squad hosts Maryland on Saturday and Sunday.
The five athletic teams scheduled to compete at various conference championships - golf, men’s and women’s outdoor track & field, men’s and women’s tennis - will still compete as scheduled.
Finally, all Monogram Club events scheduled around the Spring Game, as well as the baseball alumni tailgate, have also been canceled.
