Delaware’s three-game series at UNC Wilmington has been canceled amidst concerns about a swine flu outbreak. Delaware school officials will not allow the Blue Hens to travel to Wilmington because of several reported cases of influenza that meet the federal government’s definition for probable cases of swine flu on the Newark campus. Students have been treated at UD Student Health Services which is working closely with the Delaware Division of Public Health.
Losing the series deprives both teams of an opportunity to build some momentum and make a late surge in the Colonial Athletic Association. Both are 8-7, part of a four-way tie for fourth place.
"We’re obviously disappointed that we won’t be able to play the series, but certainly understand there is a bigger issue at hand," said UNCW coach Mark Scalf. "We wish everyone affected a speedy recovery."
