The University of Alaska Anchorage ladies’ b-ball group had two games this week deferred because of COVID-19-related conditions, athletic authorities said.
Authorities didn’t determine whether the delays were a direct result of close contacts or dynamic cases among colleagues or training staff. Nate Sagan, partner media relations chief for UAA Athletics, said that the games were delayed due to “wellbeing and security conventions connecting with COVID-19” and didn’t carefully describe the situation, refering to protection concerns.
The delays are among a few in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, including two games pushed back for the University of Alaska Fairbanks men’s ball group.
The choice to delay a game includes “an entire chain of occasions that prompts managers checking out the strength of groups and capacity to travel … it’s normally a conversation between mentors, managers and the gathering,” Sagan said.
The UAA ladies’ b-ball games should happen on Thursday and Saturday, which were likewise the times of the UAF men’s games. New games for the two groups have not yet been booked.
