M-WAC Athletics Directors have jointly agreed to
suspend their seasons though April 3rd in reaction to the
Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The decision directly preceded the NJCAA announcement of a
suspension of the collegiate season.
NJCAA officials stated that should conditions improve, regions and
individual colleges will be allowed to resume regular season
competition in a format and time period following April 3rd that has
been approved by the region.
Baseball and Softball teams will continue to practice with
additional measures added to reduce risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Practices will be primarily held outdoors with indoor
practices limited to a maximum of 25 players. The Athletics
department will also take other precautionary measures such as
monitoring, social distancing and enhanced sanitization of
facilities before and after practice.
The Fitness and Recreation Center (FRC) will remain closed through
March 22 for a deep cleaning. College officials will make a
determination during the extended Spring Break period on the use of
the FRC following March 22.
