Positive virus tests postpone WVU women’s workouts

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia women’s basketball program has pushed back the start of its summer workouts by two weeks after six players tested positive for the coronavirus, the school said Thursday.

The players who tested positive will enter a 14-day quarantine period along with others who were identified through contact tracing procedures as potentially being exposed, WVU’s athletic department said in a news release.

Workouts for athletes who test negative for the virus will now start on July 20. The Big 12 previously allowed workouts to start on July 6 but the Mountaineers have not yet started their summer prep.
