Redshirt freshman outside hitter Ashley Zuluaf spikes the ball against Wisconsin on Feb. 13 in Wilkinson Hall. The IU volleyball team's scheduled home matches against Ohio State this weekend have been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns within the Indiana program.

IU volleyball announced the cancellation of its weekend matches against Ohio State University on Wednesday afternoon.

“The universities mutually agreed to the cancellation out of an abundance of caution surrounding the health and safety of the student-athletes, coaches and staff due to COVID-19 issues within the Indiana program,” according to a joint statement from the schools.

IU was one of few teams that encountered little to no postponements for the majority of the season. IU had 16 consecutive matches before its first postponed matches against Northwestern on March 20-21. 

This cancellation means the Hoosiers’ season is over. NCAA tournament selections are on Sunday. The Hoosiers finished the season with a 3-15 record.
