MEC announces plans for return of fall sports

BRIDGEPORT– Following approval of its Board of Directors, the Mountain East Conference announced its plans Thursday for the fall semester of competition.

The MEC Return to Competition Plan is contingent upon state and local public health conditions and associated restrictions, as well as any potential adjustments to NCAA championship schedules and/or legislation.

Due to the one-year NCAA mandated reduction of maximum contests in all Division II sports, the MEC’s plan for 2020-21 includes the elimination of non-conference play for football, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball.

Additionally, the league announced the start dates for practice for football (Aug. 17) and all other fall sports (Aug. 24).
