FRISCO, Texas – Southland Conference Commissioner Tom Burnett issued the following statement today regarding weather conditions impacting several of the league’s 13 schools:

The Southland Conference office remains in close contact with its institutions and athletic programs impacted by the ongoing and unprecedented effects of Hurricane Harvey. While the storm is still active along the Texas and Louisiana coasts, it has been difficult to resolve current and upcoming competitive issues facing multiple universities.  For now, the safety of student-athletes, athletic staffs, family members and all individuals in these impacted communities throughout the Southland region is paramount. When and as weather conditions improve, it is expected that competitive and scheduling issues will be clarified.  Until then, official websites and social media accounts of Southland institutions, and the various platforms provided by local news outlets and law enforcement agencies are the best places to get official information.
