Most in-state schools turn to practice

Keeping in sync with the sweeping cancellations and postponements that have hit the American sports landscape, non-Power 5 Division I programs in Arkansas will hit pause on their respective spring sports schedules for the foreseeable future.

The Sun Belt Conference, which the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and Arkansas State University are members of, announced Thursday that the league suspended competitions in all sports indefinitely amid coronavirus concerns. Teams are still allowed to conduct practice if member schools so choose, according to the league.

The Southland Conference, of which the University of Central Arkansas is a member, and the Southwestern Athletic Conference, of which the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff is a member, also announced that all sports competitions were suspended through March 30.
