Air Force Academy Resumes Sports Programs As Shutdown Ends

With lawmakers reaching a deal to end the government shutdown, the Air Force Academy late last night announced that "all athletic events will resume immediately," with teams returning to practice in the hours before that announcement. Sources said that Fresno State men's basketball has "pinpointed a pair of Mondays in the upcoming months in which it could make up Saturday’s game that was cancelled as Air Force shut down all sporting events." But other sources said that "any such decisions remained days away and there was no guarantee that the game would be made up at all"  (Colorado Springs GAZETTE, 1/23).
