The Big West Conference Board of Directors announced July 29, that fall sports competition will be postponed through the end of the calendar year. In making the decision, the board recognized the continued serious challenges to health and safety on Big West campuses and communities impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The postponement of competition in conference-sponsored fall sports for the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa includes women’s cross country, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball. In addition, the fall competitive schedules for men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis will also be postponed.

“While we are heartbroken for our student-athletes, coaches, and fans we fully support this decision,” Athletics Director David Matlin said. “This is an extremely challenging time. However, by showing aloha and support for each other, I am confident that we will get through this together.”

This decision does not impact football of which UH is affiliated with the Mountain West conference nor the Big West winter sports of men’s and women’s basketball.
