Both Co-Lin teams were off to red-hot starts in 2020 before COVID-19 canceled their seasons.

Howard and her team were 12-1 and ranked No. 3 nationally before the season was ended.

On the baseball side, Smith and his team had won nine games in a row and finished with an 11-4 record before the cancellation came.
