The Landmark Conference released the following statement on July 31, 2020:
TOWSON, Md. – Following a unanimous vote of the Landmark Conference Executive Board, the league has postponed all conference regular season contests and championships scheduled to take place during the fall 2020 semester (thru Dec. 31, 2020).
The conference supports institutional autonomy for its member institutions and teams to engage in athletically related activities in accordance with their local and state health guidelines and NCAA Division III rules.
The conference and its member institutions are exploring ways to provide competitive opportunities for fall student-athletes to participate in their sport during the spring semester barring local and state recommendations related to the pandemic. At present, it is the intent of the Landmark Conference to play a conference schedule and conduct league championships for fall sports in the Spring of 2021.
The University of Scranton athletics department will continue to explore ways to provide student-athletes with athletic opportunities with their teams in a safe and sensible manner during the fall semester. Any team activities will be held in accordance with local, state, and federal health guidelines, as well as all institutional protocols surrounding COVID-19. The athletics department will provide more information as those plans come together.
"Our priority, first and foremost, is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and University community," said Dave Martin, director of athletics. "We continue to look into ways to give our student-athletes a meaningful athletic experience during the fall semester while following proper guidelines to minimize risk. We feel there is an avenue to that, but we need to be diligent in exploring the right way to make it happen."
The Landmark will provide a status report by October 15th that will include any updates to the league's winter & spring championships along with additional information regarding future schedules.
