2/15 College Throwball Top 25

A reminder that this will be final week the college throwball regular season. Of course, usually the regular season would run through the first weekend of March (would be March 6-7 this season). The reason why the regular season is ending so early is so that conference commissioners can make decisions for their respective conference tournaments, originally all set for the week of March 8-14 and then the next few weeks the 2021 NCAA T-Division Men’s College Throwball Tournament. So, this will be the final top 25 until March.

College Throwball

Reports: Teams will play just a single game each this week due to COVID-19 protocols

Many college throwball presidents have confirmed that the each team in the country will play one game this week to limit contact tracing as the conferences near decisions on what they will do with upcoming conference tournaments, which are set for March 8-14 as of now. Most of the games will be played on the weekend, due to it being unofficial “rivalry” week.

NTBL’s Santa Fe Indians to change name

Due to movements in 2020 in the nation, many athletic teams have changed their name if team leaderships feel as if their name does not reflect the country’s morals. Thus, Santa Fe Indians leadership made this statement on their social medias: “After much consideration, we have decided to change our organization’s nickname, beginning in the 2021 off-season. This will be a long process so as we go through this time we will be going with a temporary name: the Santa Fe Throwball Team. Thank you for your time, and we cannot wait to continue the great years of Santa Fe professional throwball.”
