MCAC reaffirms fall sports decision

Minnesota West Bluejays


The Minnesota College Athletic Conference reasserted is July 6 decision cancelling fall football, volleyball and soccer seasons. The conference disseminated a press release re-stating its commitment on Tuesday.

The release added that a decision regarding spring seasons for basketball, wrestling, baseball and softball will be decided sometime in October.

On July 6 presidents of member MCAC colleges canceled football, volleyball and soccer for the 2020-21 season due to health concerns in light of COVID-19. One week later, the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) announced its decision to move football to the spring, leaving some to ponder whether the MCAC, rather than going ahead with the cancellations, might instead move its fall sports to spring.

Tuesday’s announcement confirmed the original plan.

The MCAC consists of 24 two-year colleges in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin, including Worthington-based Minnesota West Community and Technical College.
