After having cancelled or postponed six games due to COVID protocols, Virginia athletics has announced that the women’s basketball team is opting out of the remainder of the 2020-2021 season. Injuries have also plagued the team throughout the season.
“We have the pleasure of coaching a very resilient group of young women who have fought through injuries, a strict COVID-19 protocol, and all the mental battles that come with it,” said head coach Tina Thompson in a released statement. “So, the decision to end our season mid-stream comes with great difficulty. As difficult as it is to end our season in this manner, it is a necessary one.
