BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- Mid-South Conference officials announced today the suspension of all athletic events through the end of March.
The decision comes based on the continuing developments across the landscape of athletics from the effects of COVID-19.
"In an effort to make the most well-informed decisions regarding the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff due to the developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mid-South Conference has decided to suspend all competition at least through the end of March," MSC Commissioner Eric Ward said. "The situation is evolving at a dizzying pace and decisions are currently being made based on incomplete and/or rapidly changing information. Conference leadership will be convening by conference call twice each week during this time period to evaluate the most recently available information and developments within the sports industry, as well as up-to-the-minute information from the NAIA and our campuses to determine the best path forward for our conference."
