HELENA -- With recent changes to COVID-19 guidelines in Montana, Carroll College athletics said they will not be allowing spectators at basketball games for the time being. The decision was made official Wednesday after consulting with both the Frontier Conference and Lewis and Clark Public Health, Carroll College athletics director Charlie Gross said in a press release.
"Carroll College hopes to do its part in keeping Helenans safe. At this time, it's in everyone's best interest if our loyal fans stay home and enjoy the basketball games from afar. We feel fortunate that our student-athletes are able to compete and look forward to seeing the PE Center bleachers once again filled with Purple and Gold when we can allow spectators to attend," Gross said in the release.
The Carroll College men's basketball team is slated to host the Dickinson State Blue Hawks on Friday at 7 p.m.
Though spectators will not be able to attend in person, Carroll College athletics will be streaming Friday's men's basketball matchup on its Youtube channel.
