A-State Athletics Statement on Volleyball Team’s SBC Tournament Participation

November 17, 2020

JONESBORO, Ark. (11/17/20) – The Arkansas State Athletics Department announced Tuesday that due to COVID-19 testing and taking extra precautions to provide a safe travel environment, its volleyball team will not be participating in this week’s Sun Belt Conference Tournament.
 
The Athletics Department notified the Sun Belt Conference office today that its volleyball team will be unable to travel to Foley, Ala., for the league’s 2020 Volleyball Championship.  As a result of this notification, the Sun Belt has removed the Red Wolves from the tournament bracket and pool play.
 
“We’re obviously very disappointed that we aren’t going to be able to compete in the conference tournament, but the safety and health of our student athletes is our top priority,” head coach Santiago Restrepo said. “I’m heartbroken for our seniors who did not get to finish their season at the conference tournament, but I’m thankful for their contributions to our program.”

Fans can follow the team on Twitter (@AStateVB) and Instagram (astatevb) along with liking the Arkansas State University Volleyball page on Facebook for the latest news and updates regarding the team.
