Red Dragons shuffle schedules

The COVID-19 outbreak has led to a number of changes to SUNY Cortland Athletics schedules and travel plans, many of which are still to be determined.

The following is a general overview of how teams are currently affected. Since many of these changes are still either not official, or still being worked on, many of them are not yet reflected on our schedule pages. We will release changes as they become official.

PLEASE NOTE: It is very likely that NO SPECTATORS will be allowed at any Cortland home games that are held the remainder of the semester.

As of Wednesday evening, Cortland softball is still scheduled to play games in Florida March 15-20. Four of the Red Dragons’ 10 scheduled opponents (Amherst, Trinity, Tufts, Stevens) have canceled their Florida trips, so Cortland’s schedule in Florida will be adjusted as the week progresses.
