CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

The last time a live sporting event was held at Casper College was on March 12 for the 3A and 4A State Basketball Tournament. The tournament was canceled later that day due to COVID-19. After the NJCAA announced that fall sports would be postponed to the spring, fans will have to wait a little longer to see live action in the Swede.

“For the betterment of athletics, and schools and institutions, that have athletics, it is better for everyone involved, not necessarily Casper, but it is better for the country if we pushed everything back to spring, and we were able to start in the spring and move forward then,” said Casper College Athletic Director Paul Marble.

A challenge that comes with moving sports to the spring is scheduling these events under one gym.

“We are having meetings with all the other schools in Region IX and other regions to see what they are doing, how we are going to move forward in some states they are regulating that some schools can’t play outside their state so we are trying to do the very best we can as far as scheduling and all of that kind of thing, it has been a interesting, a good challenge or us,” said Marble.

Fall athletes will however be able to to start practicing very soon.
