Patriot League cancels all fall athletic competition due to coronavirus
The Patriot League announced on Monday that it will not engage in any athletic competition this fall due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The league’s decision will impact a number of DMV schools including American University and Georgetown University. American is a full-time member of the conference whose field hockey, volleyball, soccer and cross-country programs will all be affected. As an associate member of the league in football, Georgetown will also miss out on competition due to the announcement.
While games will not take place this fall, the league announced that decisions surrounding winter and spring seasons will be made at a later date and discussions will be had about the possibility of conducting fall seasons during the second semester.
The United States Military and Naval Academies, however, will not be impacted by the decision in the same way as their conference foes, according to a statement from the league.
“Because the United States Military Academy and the United States Naval Academy are unique in their environments and their missions within higher education, the Council of Presidents agree that the academies may continue to engage in competitive opportunities as considered appropriate by their respective Superintendents.”
The news came after many college conferences around the country began releasing their plans for the fall amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, the Ivy League canceled all fall competition while the Big Ten and Pac-12 announced their intent to play a conference-only schedule this fall.

DeMatha standout, 4-star linebacker Greg Penn III chooses LSU over Maryland
Four-star linebacker and DeMatha star Greg Penn III announced his commitment to LSU Sunday. His final two schools were LSU and Maryland.
Penn is entering his senior year at DeMatha and is currently ranked as Maryland’s top inside linebacker prospect and 10th-best prospect overall, according to 247sports. Nationally, he’s No. 183 and ninth at his position.
Now verbally committed to LSU, the Tigers will gain another talented linebacker to develop such as the Ravens’ 2020 first-round pick Patrick Queen. Orgeron and company are coming off the heels of a national championship and perfect 2019 season. Five members of last year’s team were selected in the first round of the draft.
Despite missing on Penn, head coach Mike Locksley is still gathering plenty of commitments around his team’s home state. The Terps have commitments from seven of the state’s top 30 2021 prospects, including two four-star defensive linemen from Quince Orchard high school, Demeioun Williams and Marcus Bradley.
As of now, Maryland has the 18th-ranked 2021 recruiting class in the country to follow up 2020’s 31st ranked class.
