Fall sports shift brings more activities to spring

Spring semester is always a great time for college sports.

Usually, the main sports at the forefront are basketball, softball and baseball in the spring. but now falls sports like football, and women’s volleyball will be played in the spring.

Basketball kicked off their season back in November and the SWAC tournament is right around the corner. But this this year the schedule will be packed with the additon of fall sports that were not played due to Covid.

With the SWAC postponing all fall sports until the spring semester, fans will have sporting events all over the place this semster to choose from which to attend.

This brings up the questions: How will fall and spring sports blend together? And will a sport, such as women's basketball, lack attention that it usually receives because of the presence of football on the same schedule?

Senior guard for the Lady Tigers basketball team Alexus Holt has no worries.

“I don’t think it will fully take away attention,” Holt said. 

Holt did stress that this season is definitely different than past years.

“I would have to say going through all the necessary precautions to keep us all safe, as far as getting tested multiple times a week, wearing masks in practice, daily check-ins, and never knowing when it could be your last game," Holt said.
