For the NPCC softball team, seven of their players will have the option of playing next spring with an extra year of eligibility being offered for spring athletes. For others, like Megan Hernandez-Belew, she knows she has already played her final game in a Knights uniform.

"I plan on moving to a four year (school), so I'll have three years of eligibility with a four year program," said Hernandez-Belew, when asked on her future.

Aside from what they'll be doing with their playing careers, some teammates aren't even sure if they'll be staying on campus with NPCC holding online classes for an indefinite amount of time.

Sophomore Erika McClung comes from Victoria, British Columbia in Canada and said she has been having a difficult time finding a way to get home.

"It's kind of been hard figuring out what's going on. Knowing that I'm super far from home it's kind of hard to book flights to go home."
