Posted on July 28th, 2020 by

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) announced Tuesday it will postpone fall 2020 competition in cross country, football, soccer, and volleyball due to the ongoing pandemic. The conference is working to develop spring schedules for those sports, which have been deemed at medium- or high-risk for coronavirus transmission by the NCAA.

Men’s and women’s golf and tennis – categorized as low-risk sports – will be permitted to compete against conference opponents only this fall in accordance with campus, state, and NCAA health directives, as well as the MIAC’s Return-to-Athletics Plan. The Presidents’ Council continues to support institutional autonomy regarding the decision to participate in intercollegiate athletics this fall.

Training, practice, and other athletically-related activities for all teams will be permitted in accordance with NCAA Division III rules and campus, state, and NCAA health directives.
