Spring Season: We the Students-Parents-Alumni-Friends of the Centennial D3 Athletic Conference want the Students to have a Full Spring Season.   Athletes lost their Spring 2020 Season, and now the Athletic World has adjusted and moved forward without them.  NCAA says the Athletes can play, Centennial says they can play but the 11 College Presidents refuse to Let Them Play.   The Colleges  promised the students they could play if  their "infectious disease doctors" deemed there was a "safe" way and would have a schedule posted by February end.  ***** Considering the rest of the Athletic World is competing (D3 Coaches are even attending recruiting events), and "opening up" (including outdoor stadiums with fans to 2500),  it is absurd to even assert these Student-Athletes cannot compete "safely", and to continue to penalize them and cause heartache.     And yet there is no good faith Spring Schedule posted  (and no makeup Fall-Winter as also promised).  The D3 Conferences surrounding our Centennial schools are all fully competing for Spring: the MAC, Landmark, Atlantic East Conference, Presidents Athletic Conference, New Jersey Athletic Conference, and the Coast-to-Coast Conference (Capital Athletic Conference), as well as the PSAC -D2, and the D1s (D1 Johns Hopkins Lax is even playing).   The Centennial Schools compete pre/post season with all of  these D3 schools who already have schedules posted.  The Students will not get this time back: for all of them it will be one-half of their College Years that they miss, 2 of 4 years.   The Students are working hard to be "safe" (athletes tested with almost 0 cases on campuses) and to keep themselves in shape and trying desperately to hold together as a team.    The Colleges have been well paid by these Athletes:  an average student pays $35,000/year for 4 years, times an average of 400 Athletes at each school = $56,000,000 Million/School, times 11 schools is over $616,000,000 (Millions) for the Conference in Athletes' money.   The Students  have not only earned the right to play, but paid for it too, and to have their Family Fans to Cheer.....  LET THEM PLAY !
