There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and collegiate athletics, but one thing is for certain, Humboldt State University athletes are still putting in the work.
According to HSU Athletic Director Jane Teixeira, it is just like any other summer. Players are conditioning on their own, using assignments from their coaches. Teixeira said athletes have the opportunity to meet with coaches as well.
These summer workouts will help athletes continue to prepare for the new season. Upon their return, the fall semester will consist of more training as no teams will compete after the CCAA suspended all competition. This does not mean we will be seeing less of HSU fall sports and athletes. In order to salvage the season, the CCAA made new changes which will result in a spring semester with an entirely new look.
In the spring, all 11 HSU sports will resume competition. Teixeira said the new schedule will be a difficult task from an event management standpoint, but the university is excited for the challenge.
