Gophers volleyball postpones 2nd straight matchup due to COVID-19 concerns

The University of Minnesota women’s volleyball team has had a series postponed for the second straight weekend due to COVID-19, the program announced on Thursday.

The Gophers were originally scheduled to travel for a series against Ohio State from March 5-6, but COVID-19 concerns arose in Minnesota’s locker room.

Minnesota’s matchup the previous weekend against Michigan was called off as well after COVID-19 issues cropped up among the Wolverines.

Ohio State and Minnesota will work with the Big Ten to reschedule if a window becomes available by the end of the season.

The Gophers’ next series will come March 12-13, when they’re scheduled to host Illinois.
