NCAA Season 95 officially terminated

For the first time in 58 years, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has been forced to end a tournament prematurely.

Due to the on-going coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the policy board of the league has terminated Season 95.

The decision was made Wednesday in a teleconference among the presidents of each member school — namely Arellano University, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Jose Rizal University, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Mapua University, San Beda University, San Sebastian College-Recoletos, and University of Perpetual Help System DALTA.

“The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has announced through the Policy Board of Season 95 President Francisco Cayco of Season Host Arellano University that NCAA Season 95 is terminated,” the league’s statement read. “This was arrived at after consulting the Policy Board members.

“First and foremost that was considered was the safety of the athletes, students, fans, and officials.”

Events that have been canceled are indoor volleyball, football, lawn tennis, soft tennis, track and field, under-15 basketball, and beach volleyball, as well as the cheerdance competition.

The only events that were completed were basketball, chess, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, badminton, and demo sport 3×3.

The league will have another meeting with regards to the extension of eligibility for the graduating student-athletes.

The last time the league was put on a standstill was from 1962-63 due to bickering among member schools regarding player eligibility.
