The last time Oklahoma State reported an active COVID-19 cases within its football team on its weekly reports was back in mid-October.

On Monday, OSU reported its fifth straight week without an active COVID case on the football team. However, there are 25 active cases among the school’s other athletic teams, the highest total since OSU started doing these weekly reports.

The Cowgirl basketball program announced it was pausing activities Monday after three student-athletes tested positive for the virus. The Cowgirls also canceled their season opener, which was set for Nov. 25 against Little Rock.

None of the three who tested positive reported severe symptoms, according to the release.

“We’ll get through this,” OSU women’s basketball coach Jim Littell said. “Our first priority is creating a safe environment for the people in our program. If that means we need to alter our schedule, then that’s what we’ll do. We won’t set an exact date for a return to team activities because of the uncertain nature of the virus. Our focus is to make sure that everyone is well taken care of and to do our part to minimize the spread. We’ll figure out the rest later.”

With fall sports (aside from football) ending and winter sports getting ready to start, it will be interesting to see if the winter sports are able to handle to pandemic as well as the fall sports did/have been.
