Athletic Events

The Peach Belt Conference Board of Directors announced several decisions in late August which allow for a limited fall season for cross country, tennis and golf while delaying soccer to spring of 2021. The Board’s decisions come following the NCAA Board of Governors additional requirements and the cancellation of the 2020 DII fall championships as the results of the COVID-19 pandemic. A decision regarding the timeline for men’s and women’s basketball will be made later in the fall.
