The Heart will keep on beating steadily into the fall of 2020. That is the plan.
The Heart of America Conference released news on Sunday that it intends to continue with play as scheduled for fall sports. This includes the first day of practice, which is set for Aug. 15.
The release quoted Commissioner Lori Thomas saying the league has, “chosen to stay the course for the upcoming season.”
“The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans, and officials continues to remain at the forefront of our planning for the fall. The Heart desires to be a leader in the NAIA and for us to do anything less than absolutely everything we can to get back on the playing field would cause an adverse effect to those we serve on our campuses.”
The Heart will work with the NAIA’s modifications set forward for fall sports.
