Hartford Women’s Basketball Cancels Remainder of 2020-21 Season

Head coach Morgan Valley met with the Hartford women’s basketball team on Wednesday, and they jointly arrived at the difficult decision to not play the remainder of the 2020-21 season.

The women’s basketball program worked hard to make the most of this season in the midst of a pandemic. The Hawks are the third women’s basketball program in the America East Conference to cut their season short to focus on academics and getting their student-athletes back to their full physical and mental health.

“I love these young women and admire all they have pushed through and fought for this year,” said Valley. “With multiple quarantines, shut downs, missed holidays, cancelled/rescheduled games and many unknowns, we decided that this is the best path forward for our program at this point in time. I would like to thank President Woodard, Maria Feeley and Brian Mik for their constant support and understanding during these difficult times.”

“I fully support Coach Valley, her coaching staff and her student-athletes in making this difficult decision,” said Feeley, who serves as Vice President, General Counsel, Secretary, and Interim Athletic Director. “The Athletic Department will continue to provide them with our full support so that they can finish out the spring semester strong. We will continue to provide all of our teams and student-athletes with the support they need to ensure that they can move forward this spring within the health and safety protocols we have put in place.”
