The NCAA’s DI Council Coordination Committee acted swiftly to provide another season of eligibility for spring athletes as their seasons in many cases were called before they even began.
On Thursday, the NCAA’s broad cancellation of all remaining championships for this school year occurred just a day before the 2020 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships were set to begin across all three divisions.
