Auburn volleyball announced on Friday that it has canceled its spring season.
Opt-outs and injuries resulted in the Tigers not having enough players overall and on the front row to compete this spring. As a result, Auburn fell behind the minimum threshold required for competition.
“Our guiding mission is to provide for the safety and well-being of our student-athletes and to develop them as Auburn women on and off the court,” said Crouch in a statement. “Discontinuing play at this time is consistent with this mission. We are grateful for the work of Auburn University and the SEC, which allowed us to play a fall season.”
Auburn went 0-8 in the fall season under new head coach Brent Crouch. The Tigers' first match of the spring was scheduled for Jan. 30.
“While it is disappointing that the circumstances do not allow us to participate in the spring volleyball season, the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes will always be our top priority,” athletic director Allen Greene said.
