University of Michigan-Dearborn athletes fighting to play this spring after season cancellation
DEARBORN – University of Michigan-Dearborn athletes made a plea Thursday after the university cancelled spring sports season for the second straight year. The decision was made Wednesday despite other schools in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference continuing on with their sports. When Skene and the rest of her softball teammates received an email Wednesday canceling the spring sports season again, she said it was heartbreaking. However, Skene started making calls of her own and shared her findings at Thursday’s Board of Regents meeting. “The biggest thing is that we are finally heard and actually being listened to this time, instead of just told to keep our mouth shut and do what we’re told to,” Skene said.
