NCAA Division II has announced the Presidents Council has canceled fall 2020 championships.

The announcement says in part, “Division II’s fall 2020 championships are canceled…the Presidents Council decided Wednesday due to the operational, logistical and financial challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The decision means the Pittsburg State and Missouri Southern fall athletics programs won’t have a chance to play for national championships in the 2020-2021 academic year.

There is still a possibility for some leagues to play games this fall, but teams won’t be able to play in NCAA postseason events.
