Morehouse College canceled its football and cross country seasons because of the coronavirus pandemic.
President David A. Thomas said scholarships would be honored. The Historically Black College in Atlanta competes at the NCAA Division II in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
“Like all of the decisions we’ve made related to COVID-19, this was a difficult one but was made with the health and well-being of our students and community in mind,” Thomas wrote on school website.
Thomas also wrote about the difficulty in safely travelling and hosting games and events while maintaining social distancing.
