A10 & America East "Postpone" Fall Sports, NE-10 Suspends Conference Competition Through Dec 31st


Earlier today, the Atlantic-10 (A10) conference announced that they will be postponing all conference-sponsored sports for this fall. The league "intends to conduct a competitive schedule for fall sports in the 2021 spring semester."


The A10 also agreed to a "look-in window" in mid-September which could potentially allow for a "truncated competitive schedule amongst conference opponents if the COVID-19 risk has substantially been reduced."

The America East also announced today that they will be implementing a "postponement, not cancellation" of conference competition for the upcoming fall semester. Much like the Atlantic-10, the America East conference is working to "develop plans for a competitive structure in the second semester".

The A10 and America East join the Ivy League and Patriot League as Division One conferences that are currently not expected to compete in fall sports for the upcoming semester.


Additionally, the Northeast-10 (NE10) conference announced yesterday that they will "suspend" all conference-sponsored competition and championships through December 31st. The conference is also working to potentially move competition for fall sports into the 2021 spring semester.


The NE-10 is a Division Two conference home to multiple national qualifying cross country programs such as American International, Southern New Hampshire and Stonehill. American International was responsible for producing the men's NCAA D2 Cross Country national champion Ezra Mutai last year.
