Sunday’s women’s lacrosse season opener between No. 8 Maryland and Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore has been put on hold after some individuals within the Blue Jays tested positive for the coronavirus.

A new date for the game has not yet been determined. The Terps will now begin their season on Feb. 21 at Penn State. Johns Hopkins has not released a schedule for the upcoming season.

On Friday, Maryland coach Cathy Reese emphasized that the players and coaches must be flexible during the current pandemic.

“I even said today, ‘This is what we’re looking at. This is our schedule as of today. … We could be re-routed. There will be challenges and obstacles because that’s just life right now,’” she said. “I think we’re learning to roll with it, and I’m just really impressed with how resilient and tough these kids are and how they’re handling everything has definitely made it easy on us. But I know it’s hard. It’s hard on everybody right now.”
