(Storrs, Conn./WTIC) - UConn is announcing that it has canceled all spring sports as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

In a statement, the school's athletics department says it made the decision to call off sports after heeding guidance from public health experts and university leadership.

Last week, colleges and universities scrapped the remainder winter sports including men's and women's basketball and hockey.

Last week, UConn had only decided to suspend spring sports indefinitely but announced today they had decided to cancel competition for the rest of the season.
