SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference announced Thursday that four soccer matches this weekend, including a pair of Santa Clara home contests, have been postponed due to the air quality in the Bay Area stemming from wildfires that continue to burn across Northern California.
The men were scheduled to face Saint Mary's at 7 p.m. Friday and the women set to play San Diego at 1 p.m. Saturday.
"As a member of the Bay Area community, our thoughts continue to be with those affected by the fires in our area," said West Coast Conference Commissioner Lynn Holzman. "The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes as well as institutional staff, volunteers and spectators are paramount."
The conference office is working with the affected institutions to reschedule the postponed matches for later this season.
The affected matches are:
Friday, October 13
• Men's Soccer: Pacific at San Francisco
• Men's Soccer: Saint Mary's at Santa Clara
Saturday, October 14
• Women's Soccer: San Diego at Santa Clara
• Women's Soccer: BYU at San Francisco
