UTA Athletics has confirmed it will be postponing this week’s volleyball matches after players on the team tested positive for COVID-19, according to a department press release.
The three Friday and Saturday matches against Arkansas State University were set to kick off the team’s already-shortened 2020 season. Both teams will now attempt to reschedule the series at a later date.
The Mavericks will now be attempting to open their season at Texas State University next weekend, Oct. 2-3.
According to the UTA Athletics repopulation plan, the department will work with student-athletes who are required to self-quarantine and determine the most suitable location for their isolation.
