Fall 2020 athletics at Waynesburg University, a member of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC), will proceed in accordance with the PAC’s recent announcement, outlined below.
The PAC’s Presidents’ Council has voted unanimously on the following decisions related to athletic competition in the fall 2020 semester:
- To postpone fall 2020 athletic competitions in the NCAA-defined “high contact” and “medium contact” sports of football, men’s & women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and men’s & women’s cross country until the spring 2021 semester, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The NCAA-defined “low contact” fall 2020 sports of women’s tennis and men’s & women’s golf will tentatively be permitted to compete this fall with conference competition only, as previously announced, barring additional NCAA or state guidelines/restrictions. The conference will also explore logistical options for holding fall athletic competitions in other “low contact” sports such as men’s & women’s outdoor track & field and men’s tennis, which have typically held their traditional seasons in the spring in past years.
- Tentative modified spring varsity game/competition schedules in football, soccer, volleyball and cross country will be developed by the PAC Scheduling Working Group and released in the near future.
- In addition, the PAC Presidents’ Council also agreed to not hold any winter sport varsity sports competitions prior to January 1, 2021.
