SALT LAKE CITY " NCAA Division I student-athletes who compete in spring sports will have an additional season of competition and an extension of their period of eligibility, the NCAA Division I Council ruled Monday as college athletics have been impacted by the conoravirus pandemic.

There won't be any eligibility relief for student-athletes in winter sports, as the majority of their seasons were completed, the council also announced.

NCAA championships for both winter and spring sports were canceled March 12, as the pandemic began to initially make its impact in the sports world.
