WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (Tribe Athletics) - In accordance with the Colonial Athletic Association [], William & Mary Athletics has canceled all competitions for the remainder of the winter and spring sports seasons in an effort to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

All athletics related activities remain suspended until further notice. In alignment with the CAA, W&M has indefinitely suspended all in-person, on- and off-campus recruiting.
