NEW YORK (AP) — For the second straight year the Ivy League will not hold a spring sports conference season, the conference presidents announced.

The move came nearly a year after the conference was the first to cancel its postseason basketball tournament.

The Ivy League presidents wrote in a joint statement that they decided to cancel the spring sports seasons to be consistent with the schools measures to protect everyone on campus.
