All WMU sports canceled or postponed through weekend

Sept. 14, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- The WMU Division of Intercollegiate Athletics has announced the suspension of the entire week's Bronco sports schedule in response to national events that began to unfold Tuesday. Some contests have been postponed to later dates. Others have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.

The decision to postpone or cancel home and away events was made by University and athletic department officials. WMU would have hosted games in softball and women's soccer this weekend. The remaining sports teams were scheduled for away contests. The Mid-American Conference asked all member institutions to honor the requests of this week's opponents with regard to schedule changes.

"After consulting with representatives from around the conference and nation, we decided it was appropriate to cancel our events through the weekend," said Kathy Beauregard, director of intercollegiate athletics.

Only one makeup date has been announced so far. The women's soccer match versus Central Michigan, originally scheduled for today at the WMU Soccer Complex, will be played on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

Football versus Michigan at Ann Arbor was officially postponed yesterday. A future date for that game has yet to be determined.

Also canceled or postponed were contests scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 11, through Sunday, Sept. 16, involving the WMU teams in men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer, softball and volleyball.
