I'm inclined to say overwatering. Strawberries need deep watering, but the roots need very high airflow. They need to dry out very fast and then receive deep watering again.

If the soil does not dry out very fast, then watering will need to be done only occasionally.

I would let the soil dry out thoroughly down to at least 3 or 4 inches between watering. If you feel any moisture down to that depth, then hold off watering.

Here is an article that will help you with strawberry care:
