As spring rounds the corner, Clark College has made the difficult decision to continue postponing sports through spring term.
This decision comes after it was announced that, starting Feb. 15, Clark County would enter the second phase of Washington’s “Roadmap to Recovery” plan.
The Northwest Athletic Conference recently updated its 2020-21 “Return to Play” plan, which allowed its 36 colleges to start sports again on March 1 if they chose. While other community colleges in the area chose to return, Clark joined Portland, South Puget Sound and Shoreline Community Colleges’ in postponing spring competition for a second year.
Clark College Director of Athletics Laura LeMasters noted that despite the disappointing news, Clark students and staff remain the number one priority.
“We are working with our student-athletes to see how we can best support them and help them be successful in their athletic and academic careers,” LeMasters said.
Clark plans to reinstate competitive sports fall 2021, alongside the return of on-campus classes.
