Correction: An earlier version of this story referenced Minot State sports seasons. What has been canceled are the NCAA Championships. Many questions remain for how individual conferences will respond to the situation. Minot State is a member of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
The fall NCAA championships for Minot State University Men’s and Women’s athletics have been canceled due to the global coronavirus pandemic. This includes men’s football, men’s and women’s cross country, women’s volleyball, and women’s soccer.
According to a report from ESPN.com, the NCAA Board of Governor’s deferred decisions on the fall athletic championships to each respective division. As a result, the President’s Councils of both Division II and Division III colleges made the difficult decision to cancel the fall athletics seasons.
In spite of the unwelcome news, Minot State Football coach, Mike Aldrich, shared the following message via twitter.
