Earlier today, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported that Ivy League programs have been informed that fall sports have been cancelled. Winter sports will receive an update later this month on their practice schedules.
Numerous schools within the Ivy League have already announced plans for an altered fall semester with classes being taught online and a limited number of students being allowed to return to campus.
Dana O'Neil of The Athletic is reporting that the conference is still hopeful that they can move fall sports to the spring, although nothing has been decided.
This past winter, Harvard was the first team to pull their athletes from competing at the 2020 NCAA D1 Indoor Track & Field Championships. The national meet would ultimately be cancelled. The Ivy League was also the first conference in the NCAA to cancel spring sports earlier this year.
The Ivy League is home to a handful of the NCAA's top distance talents. Last fall, the Cornell women, Columbia women, Harvard men and Harvard women all qualified for the 2019 NCAA XC National Championships.
