Butler student athletes received the news on Aug. 23 that Hinkle Fieldhouse would be closed indefinitely, limiting their teams’ access. This decision was a part of the university’s two-week plan that included moving classes online in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Yesterday, Butler confirmed the plan would be limited to two weeks, and school will resume in person on Sept. 7. The email did not, however, clarify when Hinkle or the HRC will reopen.
