A Message From Brian Hardin, Drake Director of Athletics

Hello Bulldogs Fans,

All of us in the Drake athletics department extend our thoughts to you during this unprecedented time. Potentially now more than ever, we are grateful for the support and well wishes many of you have shared with our student-athletes, coaches, and staff. I wanted to take a moment and send this message that hopefully provides a glimpse of what we have experienced, what we are currently dealing with, and what our plan is for our athletics department.

The past few weeks on our campus have been truly remarkable. The conversations that transpired within our athletics department and the Missouri Valley Conference from March 12-14 when we decided to cancel the women's basketball tournament and later the spring sports season were painful to participate in because we knew what those activities meant to our student-athletes and coaches.
