American Southwest Conference Delays Fall Sports to Spring



The American Southwest Conference has decided to delay fall sporting events “with anticipation of resuming” competition and tournaments in spring 2021 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The delay includes the fall sports of cross country, football, soccer and volleyball.

Individual institutions can engage in athletics-related activities, including non-conference competition, as long as they follow institutional, local, state and federal public health guidelines, the conference said.

The conference “recognizes the disappointment of students who normally participate in conference-scheduled regular-season and championship competition during the fall semester,” said Amy Carlton, commissioner of the American Southwest Conference, in a statement, “The conference leadership and administrators will continue planning for fall sports to resume conference competition and tournament opportunities in the spring semester as appropriate.”
