“With the health and safety of our campus and athletic communities at the forefront, the [conference] Presidents are utilizing a set of guiding principles to assist in their decision-making around the resumption of sports this fall,” said conference commissioner Noreen Morris, in a statement. “With so many unknown factors at this point in time, the [conference] has elected to delay the start of competition and take advantage of the extra time to continue to evaluate the local, regional and national landscape relative to COVID-19. The Presidents will reconvene in a few weeks to chart the course moving forward.”
