Capitol Conference Postponing Fall Events

The Capitol Conference issued the following press release today regarding their fall sports season.   Marshall Athletic Director Matt Kleinheinz says that their school board has a meeting set for Wednesday night to discuss the topic.  Waterloo Athletic Director Dave Frisell tells that his school district will take up the topic at Monday’s scheduled meeting.  Columbus Athletic Director Joe Schneider says that his school will move girls tennis, girls volleyball, boys soccer and cross country to the spring and they are still waiting for an official decision on football.

The Capitol Conference is committed to the health and safety of our students, staff, and our communities. With that in mind, the Capitol Conference recommended on an 8-3 vote to move the fall sports seasons of Girls Volleyball, Girls Tennis, Boys Soccer, and Boys/Girls Cross Country to the spring in alignment with the plan passed by the WIAA. All schools continue to have the opportunity to make decisions on fall sports based on local data which best serves their stakeholders and keeps their students, staff, and communities safe. Therefore, Capitol Conference member schools may decide to proceed with their fall seasons independently and may schedule non-conference competitions in any or all the fall sports that they offer.
