BLOOMINGTON –Following a recommendation by the NCAA Division III Administrative Committee, the MIAC has announced that it will postpone all athletic competition until January.

The delay in competition will grant institutions, staff and students additional time to adjust to new safety protocols on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic and allow for continued testing and treatment developments.

The MIAC had previously postponed football, volleyball and cross country, which are considered medium- and high-risk sport, to the spring. Monday’s announcement will delay competition in golf and tennis until the second half of their split-season schedules. The MIAC Golf Championships, previously scheduled in October, will be rescheduled for the spring of 2021.
