MIAA delays all sports competition until late September

The MIAA announced it will delay all of its sports practices until the week of August 31. Competition won't begin until at least September 28th.

Lincoln University athletic director and men's basketball coach John Moseley said he supports the decision.

"I think it’s the right call," Moseley said. "I’m glad the league didn’t panic and didn’t pull the plug completely. We’re trying to give ourselves the most time as we can to make the best decision that we can to allow - if at all possible - for us to play."

The Lincoln football team was originally scheduled to play its first three weeks against Fort Hays State, Nebraska Kearney and Pittsburg State. It's still unclear if those games will be made up at a later date. For now, LU's opener will be on Oct. 3 against Washburn.

Meanwhile - the Heart of America Athletic Conference announced it will continue with fall sports as planned. Central Methodist and Missouri Valley will open up their football seasons on Sept. 12. All other sports can begin on Sept. 5.
