KVCC cancels winter sports

The college is opting out of men's and women's basketball and women's volleyball for the winter semester.

Kalamazoo Valley Community College has decided to opt out of all of its winter sports as the state continues to see high numbers of coronavirus infections.

KVCC would normally have teams participating in men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball as part of the National Junior College Athletic Association, Region 12.

College President L. Marshall Washington made the announcement last week via a post on the school’s website.

“I recognize how disappointing this is for our coaches, athletes and their families,” he said in the statement. “I look forward to the day that they can once again compete in a safe environment.”
