The Great Midwest does plan to have a cross country season this fall. The conference championship meet is scheduled for Oct. 24 at Tiffin University.

“Additionally,” the Great Midwest announced, “engagement in all sports, including golf and tennis competition, will be permitted in the fall by institutions as they are able to meet NCAA, national, and local health and safety guidelines.”

Cedarville has been a member of the Great Midwest, a NCAA Division II conference, since 2013.
