University of Southern Maine cancels fall sports season
Gorham,ME The University of Southern Maine is the latest University to cancel the fall sports season. The decision follows USM Athletics’ months-long work and consultation with the University’s Fall Planning Task Force and the Little East Conference. The rules associated with long distance travel on buses and vans to Little East Conference destinations and the complexities tied to competition itself presented too much of a challenge to safely resume play.
University of Maine Presque Isle Athletic Director Dan Kane says they are still wroking on plans to come back on campus and practice and also working with the North Atlantic Conferenc eon exploring their options including having competition this fall.
The University of Maine Fort Kent is also continuing to explore options for the fall season.
