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.

The NCAA originally suspended all practice and competitions until April 13, but later extended the suspension until the end of the spring 2020 semester.

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.
