Air Force athletic events canceled due to government shutdown

In a brief statement, the Academy announced that "home and away intercollegiate athletic events have been cancelled until further notice".

The Academy has said that it will "work to reschedule as many missed events as possible" once the shutdown has concluded, per a press release.

The U.S. government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to resolve a partisan standoff over immigration and spending. Especially if the shutdown isn't taken care of immediately. Both Army's men's and women's basketball teams play Lehigh today at 2 pm in West Point and Bethlehem.

An oil and gas drilling engineer, she was born in the same county as Dragnea and served under him on the Teleorman County Council. Last June, a similar scenario saw another PSD premier, Sorin Grindeanu, forced out of office.

A Navy sports information director said the school is still playing its events Saturday, while the Army has not addressed the shutdown, though the Black Knights are expected to play games as scheduled.

In addition to the hockey and men's basketball teams, the Air Force rifle, men and women's swimming, women's basketball and men's gymnastic teams were all scheduled to compete on Saturday.

While many government divisions are closed, the military operates slightly differently to the rest of the government. But it's a reminder of how so many things need to be adapted very quickly when the government shuts down.
