“We are beyond excited to welcome Lumberjack nation in full force for the upcoming year for all of our sports”, said Ivey. There is much excitement and anticipation as we officially transition to the WAC and continue our opportunities to compete for championships and achieve our vision of becoming the leading mid-major athletics department in the nation! We look forward to see everyone back, as I know they are eager to support and cheer on our Lumberjacks and Ladyjacks”.

In accordance with state and local guidelines, mask wearing will be optional for fans attending SFA sporting events. Additional cleaning and sanitation measures will continue throughout the fall, and adjustments such as digital ticketing and cashless concessions will be maintained to help ensure the health and safety of fans.
