IDAHO — The Cascade Collegiate Conference announced today that the Council of Presidents has decided to move the upcoming Fall 2020 sports schedule to Spring 2021.

As a result, College of Idaho's men and women's soccer, cross country, volleyball and golf will all be played during the spring season.

“The ongoing issues with COVID-19 and the surge in cases, particularly in the geographical regions of our member schools, has made the prospect of properly conducting a fall season with the confidence we need to ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes during this pandemic unrealistic,” said the press release stated by CCC Commissioner Robert Cashell.

In addition to this change, all CCC sports are on hold until at least Nov. 1 and will be reevaluated closer to that date.

No decisions on winter sports have been made at this time.

The press release stated that the league will continue to monitor COVID-19, and if necessary changes to the winter season will be made.
