Athletics Suspended - College

The Chronicle has learned that the State and National Science Olympiads have been cancelled for 2020. Clinton Middle School is the defending South Carolina Champion in this event.


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Presbyterian College and the Big South Conference today announced Friday that all competition and required athletics activities have been suspended through at least March 30 to mitigate the further spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The decision was made by the league's Council of Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) with consultation from the Council of Athletics Directors to protect the health and well-being of student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans.

The decision affects all 19 PC sports and their respective home and away competitions, as well as all practices and workouts.

The CEOs will convene in the near future to evaluate activities beyond March 30, including the status of the Conference Championships.

As most of you are aware from the news releases, there are several cases of Coronavirus COVID-19 here in our state and in some Upstate counties. Governor McMaster has ordered that visitation at state and local correctional facilities shall be suspended immediately. Although there are no present cases in Laurens County, we feel that this is in the best interest of the inmates and staff at our detention center. We will revisit this issue at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience.
