The Southwest Preparatory Conference has announced that the 2020 Fall athletic season has been cancelled. SPC commissioner Bob Windham has issued the following statement:
SPC Board of Directors Statement Regarding the
FALL 2020 Athletic Season
We recognize each of our member schools are under unusual and challenging circumstances regarding every aspect of their school's operations.
We recognize we are members of a Conference with a wide variance in local conditions, approaches, and opinions regarding how to handle these challenging circumstances as they relate to athletic competition.
We recognize our member schools are located in multiple metro areas, spread over a wide geographic area, with varying health conditions, regulations, public opinions, and governmental recommendations.
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the SPC Board of Directors approves the cancellation of the 2020 fall SPC athletic season.
The SPC Board of Directors further approved maintaining existing plans for the winter and spring SPC seasons, and those plans be sustained without alteration and played as currently scheduled consistent with current SPC policies. The Operations Committee and SPC Board of Directors will revisit plans for winter and spring seasons at a later date and determine if any adjustments are required as a result of circumstances at that time.
While disappointed at not having the opportunity to compete for conference supremacy, the EHS Athletics Pillar will continue to offer the full complement of fall sports and will proceed with plans to compete under strict health and safety guidelines. Schedules are being restructured and will be posted soon.
