Pima student athletes given new life after lost season

By Nate Martinez By now, one would have to be living under a rock to not know that COVID-19 really hindered college athletics.

On October 22, the NJCAA decided that the 2020-2021 year of eligibility would not count towards student athlete eligibility. This basically means that athletes who were to compete, or h...

The league's health and safety protocols for this season say that anyone with a positive test in this ‘pre-camp phase’, “must receive medical clear...
