All student-athletes who are part of a spring NCAA championship sport have been granted an additional year of eligibility, according to Pace Associate Athletics Director for External Operations, Drew Brown.
However, the sudden end to the spring 2020 season came as a shock to many student-athletes. On Thursday, Pace Athletics Twitter released a video of senior athletes discussing the end of their seasons.
“All of the classes were feeling it, and that is a testament to what we have built.”
Things have certainly changed since the unprecedented end of the spring season, but those final moments with their teams will be something that our student-athletes never forget. pic.twitter.com/6PA4gBgg57

Teams, such as women’s basketball, have been meeting virtually through Zoom after their seasons abrupt end. In addition, Pace’s Athletics Department is partnering with Pace to launch an ESports League as something for students to do throughout virtual learning.
