The Lone Star Conference has announced the cancelation of all competition for the remainder of the spring season.

The decision was reached by the LSC Council of Presidents with the health, safety and wellness of student-athletes, coaches, administrators, athletic staffs and fans as the top priority.

The announcement aligns with the recent NCAA decision to cancel all spring championship events due to the evolving COVID-19 public health threat.

Tarleton State University, which first joined the LSC in 1968, previously announced it is moving up from NCAA Division 2 to Division 1 status. TSU will be competing as part of the Western Athletic Conference starting with the 2020-2021 school year.
