(Greensburg) -- Seton Hill University has canceled the rest of the women's lacrosse season in the wake of last month's bus crash in Cumberland County that killed the team's pregnant coach.

A statement on the Westmoreland County-based university's website says the decision was made out of "concern for the physical health and emotional well being of our student-athletes."

The bus was carrying 23 players and coaches when it crashed on the Pennsylvania Turnpike on the way to a game at Millersville University. The March 16 accident killed 30-year-old coach Kristina Quigley, her unborn child and the bus driver, 61-year-old Johnstown resident Anthony Guaetta.

The team had five games remaining on its schedule.
