SDSU Postpones Home Athletic Contests Through Sunday
Oct. 23, 2007
SAN DIEGO -
Due to the wildfires throughout San Diego County, all San Diego State home athletic contests scheduled for the remainder of the week have been postponed. This includes Saturday's home football game against Brigham Young, which has now been rescheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1, at Qualcomm Stadium.
"This decision was an easy one to make," SDSU Athletic Director Jeff Schemmel said. "We have thousands of our fellow San Diegans who are either in peril, have lost their homes or are still evacuated. Many of those evacuees are counting on Qualcomm Stadium as their temporary home. All of that is much more important than any athletic event. Our thoughts, prayers and most importantly, our efforts should be focused entirely on those people."
In addition to the football game, the Aztecs were originally scheduled to play host to events in women's soccer, men's soccer, cross country, swimming and diving and volleyball this week from Thursday through Sunday. All of those home events will either be rescheduled or moved to an alternate site. The next SDSU home athletic event currently set to take place is women's soccer against TCU and a women's tennis event, the SDSU Fall Tennis Classic, on Friday, Nov. 2.
In addition to the athletic events, the San Diego State cheer and dance clinic, slated for Sunday, Oct. 28, has been canceled with a make-up date yet to be determined.
