Syracuse’s men’s soccer scrimmage, originally scheduled for Saturday against Virginia, has been canceled after a member of the program tested positive for COVID-19.
All other members of the program have tested negative, and athletes are quarantining in accordance with guidelines from New York state and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to an SU Athletics release.
Men’s soccer is the second Syracuse program to have games or exhibitions postponed this weekend, with field hockey’s two-game series against Duke postponed after members of the team came in contact with an unaffiliated individual who tested positive for COVID-19.
The Orange’s exhibition against the Cavaliers was their first of the shortened 2020 season, and they’re scheduled to travel and face Navy in Annapolis, Maryland on Sept. 25. One week later, SU is scheduled to play Pitt Oct. 3 at SU Soccer Stadium in its home-opener.
But with athletes now quarantined for an unspecified period of time, the logistics of those future games remain in flux.
