The Boston School teaching workers did not need the workforce to land Saturday and play the sport at 5 p.m. native time. Though A&M officers reportedly provided to maneuver the sport again a few hours, the Eagles requested the sport be postponed to Sunday. The Aggies declined due to logistical points.
Therefore, no recreation.
“We’re perplexed by this determination and disenchanted for our student-athletes and followers,” A&M coach Billy Kennedy stated in a press release.
Boston School athletic director Martin Jarmond cited “mechanical and logistical points” for canceling the sport, noting that they’d have agreed to a 9 p.m. native time begin Saturday, or a Sunday recreation.
“The protection and well-being of our student-athletes is paramount. On no account will we put our student-athletes in hurt’s method,” Jarmond stated in a press release.
No make-up date has been introduced for a possible recreation between the Eagles (6-2) and Aggies (3-4).
