Lobos Relocate Teams Due to COVID-19 Concerns

Andy Berg Headshot

The University of New Mexico’s basketball and football programs are shifting locations as they look to proceed with seasons impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the John B. Salvo gymnasium at Moriarty High School has become the new, temporary practice home this week for the Lobos’ men’s and women’s basketball teams, which are preparing for the start of their seasons in 20 days. The teams will practice in Moriarty, in Torrance County, as public health orders in Albuquerque won’t allow them to practice because of high case counts in their area.

Coaches for the women’s team stayed in a hotel in Moriarty Wednesday and Thursday night and the men’s coaches plan to do the same on Friday and Saturday. The teams plan to get in three practices each.
