WKU Athletes Continue Return to Campus

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Western Kentucky University’s summer restart plan kicked off last month with 65 members of the Hilltoppers’ football team returning to campus to begin voluntary workouts.

Since then, the Athletic Department has recorded 0 positive cases of Covid-19 and will look to keep that going this week as more student-athletes return to the Hill.

Starting today, a total of 80 athletes will begin their trek back to campus for offseason training.

Among those returning are the remaining 40 members of the Tops’ football team, all 14 members of the volleyball team and all 26 members of the Lady Hilltoppers soccer team.

Later this week, the men’s and women’s basketball teams will make their way back to campus as well. The two squads will arrive on July 9 and begin workouts one week from today, on July 13.
