The Midwest Conference is moving forward with fall 2020 schedule for the time being. However, as with so many decisions right now, this is subject to change in upcoming weeks.
Following a meeting of the Presidents’ Council, the conference offered the following statement on its site:
“At this time the Midwest Conference will continue to move forward with planning for a fall season but will eliminate all non-conference competition. The first games for most colleges will begin in late September.
“The MWC COVID-19 Working Group will continue its efforts toward the development of a common set of criteria for the screening and monitoring of COVID-19 in order to protect the health of student-athletes and college communities when intercollegiate competition resumes.
“The presidents are in consensus that close monitoring of the COVID-19 landscape is ongoing and fall competition may not occur if public health guidance changes in the coming weeks.
“Further announcements regarding Midwest Conference athletics for 2020-21 will be released in the weeks ahead.”
