Though the 2020 spring athletics season was cancelled due to the spread of COVID-19, that hasn’t stopped UMassD student-athletes from excelling. Many student-athletes are using their time away from the training room to work in hospitals, nursing homes, and community health centers to help their communities battle COVID-19.
