Due to the rising number of COVID cases throughout the tri-state region, Williamson has canceled all basketball practices and its four games that were to be played over the semester break.
"With the number of positive COVID cases rising each day, we had to make the decision that was best for our players, coaches and all of Williamson at this time. The campus is currently closed to all but essential personnel only and we are not sure when that will change. We need to keep everyone safe and also give our opponents enough lead time to see if they can fine another opponent," shared Williamson Director of Athletics Dale Plummer.
"We obviously feel bad for our players and our opponents but for us, it is the right decision to make."
The games that are affected by the change are as follows:
Friday, January 7 at Salem
Sunday, January 9 PSU Lehigh Valley
Tuesday, January 11 @ Lehigh Carbon
Friday, January 14 Christendom
If things improve, Williamson is next scheduled to play at Bucks County College on Thursday, January 20.
