COVID-19 spoils track and field’s spring season

The sports world went silent March 12 when the coronavirus pandemic led to the postponement of all major professional sports leagues and collegiate athletics throughout the United States.

It was on this same day that NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I men’s and women’s remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. The 2019-2020 Track and Field season was over for Marquette student athletes including junior Joe Keys, who was scheduled to participate in the NCAA Indoor Championships the very next day.

Keys was the only Golden Eagle who qualified for the Indoor Championships that were to be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
