Big Sky cancels spring sports competitions, championships

Following a unanimous vote by its Presidents’ Council, the Big Sky Conference canceled all competitions and championships for the remainder of the 2020 spring sports season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the conference announced Wednesday.

In addition, practices and workouts for all teams in every Big Sky sponsored sport have been suspended.

Montana State plans to continue providing support services for their student-athletes while following national, state and campus protocols for social distancing and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

“This is undoubtedly the proper decision for the health and well-being of all involved with the Big Sky, even though it certainly is disappointing for many of our student-athletes and coaches,” Big Sky commissioner Tom Wistrcill said in a press release.
