A Statement from Dave Rubio on the Postponement of the 2020 Season

Aug 13, 2020

Arizona head volleyball coach Dave Rubio has issued the following statement on the Pac-12's decision to postpone all competition until the end 2020:

"While I am very disappointed for our players and our staff that we will not be able to take the court this fall, I fully support the decision made by the Pac-12 and its presidents to postpone sports through the end of 2020.
 
The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes should always come first, and I believe this decision showed the commitment to student-athlete welfare above all else from not only the conference, but from President Robbins and Dave Heeke as well. We are very fortunate to have such strong leadership in these unprecedented times.
 
I am devastated for our players, who have shown such incredible resolve and hard work throughout the last five uncertain months to be ready for this season. I know we will be ready when we are allowed to compete again. Until that day comes, we will offer full support to our student-athletes and persevere through this together. Bear Down!"
