The NCAA claims to protect student-athletes, yet the student-athletes are continuously being harmed by this "non-profit" organization. The events of May 8-12, 2021 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana are another example of the harm the NCAA is causing. During this time, the NCAA Women's Golf Regional Championship was being held at The University Club where teams were required to arrive on May 8th for COVID-19 testing. Due to a large amount of rain, the golf tournament rounds kept being postponed. Throughout the days of the tournament, there was no effort made to adapt to the course conditions and get players competing. After a lack of communication and leadership, this golf tournament was canceled, abruptly ending many schools' seasons without anything they could do. The teams that advanced from this regional tournament to compete in the national championship (without any golf being played) were the top six seeded teams based on a ranking system that is extremely skewed, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the full details on the events of this tournament are not listed here, they can easily be found through several articles written on this issue. There are a lot of "why's" being asked by several people, even those not affected by this tournament. Why was the maintenance staff not called to work on the golf course? Why were coaches not consulted about the decisions? Why did they not even attempt to play 18 holes? Nobody is presenting any answers, not at the tournament and not even now after the decisions have been made. As much as we wish that these teams would have been able to compete in the postseason that they earned, the least that can be given to these teams are answers. 

Players have fallen victim to the NCAA once again without an explanation, so it's time to do something about it. All that is asked is that you give collegiate athletes a voice and keep this from happening again by investigating the decisions and actions that led to this result.
