Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) announced July 27 that it would postpone regular season competition and championships for the 2020 fall semester for the sports of football, volleyball and soccer. Competition in those sports, as well as GLVC championship events, will be conducted in the 2021 spring semester.

The conference will allow competitions in cross country, golf, swimming, and track and field during the 2020 fall semester, and S&T will move forward with these sports. A decision about the start of basketball — which is scheduled to compete on a conference-only basis in the 2020–21 season — will be made by Oct. 1.

The decision, voted on by the conference’s Council of Presidents, was made based on guidance from the athletics directors across the league and an extensive review of the recommended testing and safety measures developed by the NCAA Sport Science Institute.
