College sports and the coronavirus

The NCAA Division I Board of Directors approved a plan on Tuesday to conduct 2020 fall championships in the spring of 2021.

The sports included in the decision are men's and women's cross country, field hockey, men's and women's soccer, women's volleyball and men's water polo. As part of the plan, brackets sizes will be filled at 75 percent of their normal capacities.

All championship sites will be predetermined and the number of preliminary-round sites will be reduced to support health and safety.

The plan sent to us by the Division I Council provides the maximum number of opportunities to fall student-athletes to participate in NCAA championships while still being fiscally responsible, said acting board chair Denise Trauth, president at Texas State. We look forward to the spring, understanding things will look a little different but knowing the competitions will be just as meaningful as in normal circumstances.
