Sacramento State forced to withdraw from NCAA Cle Elum Regional due to COVID-19 contact tracing

·1 min read

For the second time on Tuesday COVID-19 has negatively impacted an NCAA regional competition.

Just hours after Sam Houston State announced star player William Holcomb was forced to sit out the final round of the men’s Stillwater Regional due to contact tracing protocols, the NCAA announced Sacramento State withdrew from the Cle Elum Regional for the same reason.

From the NCAA statement: “After consulting with the NCAA Championship Medical Team, the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Committee regrets to announce that, due to COVID-19 protocols, Sacramento State will be unable to continue to participate in the 2021 Division I Men’s Golf Championships. Sacramento State was competing in the Cle Elum regional in Washington state this week. Because of privacy issues, no further details will be provided.”

The Hornets were making their third NCAA regional appearance, and first since 2017, after winning the Big Sky Conference Championship. Sacramento State was in 13th place out of 14 teams after Monday’s first round.
