All University of Guam varsity and club sports will be suspended until the fall semester, the Triton Athletics Department announced today. The suspension comes amidst the 14-day government of Guam shutdown in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak in Guam and the university’s move to online-only classes for the remainder of the semester.

 Four varsity teams and two club teams will end their seasons with the following records:

  • Triton Men’s Varsity Basketball: 8-10
  • Triton Women’s Varsity Basketball: 7-5
  • Triton Men’s Varsity Soccer: 2-10-2
  • Triton Women’s Varsity Soccer: 3-8-2
  • Trident Men’s Club Basketball: 0-1
  • Trident Women’s Club Volleyball: 2-5

The Trident Women’s Club Volleyball Team is scheduled to start Oct. 6 in a four-team league with a final championship game scheduled for Dec. 2.

The Triton Men’s Basketball Team will return to play on Oct. 27 in the six-team Triton Men’s Basketball League. Several games will be aired on PBS Guam, and the final championship game is scheduled for Dec. 6.
