The Ohio Valley Conference officially announced a handful of changes for the fall sports season in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Athletics are expected to happen, but women’s soccer and volleyball have been delayed until Sept. 17. Additionally, they will play conference-only schedules. 

The decision excludes football due to contractual obligations. 

Men’s and women’s cross country, golf and tennis will also be delayed until Sept. 17 along with non-traditional baseball and softball competition. 

The conference’s release noted that the winter and spring sporting schedules are expected to remain unchanged.
