GSC Delays Start of Fall Competition
The Gulf South Conference will delay the start of intercollegiate competition in the fall semester to either the last week of September or the first week of October.
Administrators from across the league will jointly work on a schedule that fits the timeline for competition in an effort to provide a meaningful fall competition season for conference members. To accommodate this new schedule, soccer and volleyball will exclusively play against conference opponents. Additionally, a corresponding delay to the beginning of official practices will be instituted.
New schedules and additional details on implementation of the delayed fall season will be distributed by the conference as they are approved by the membership. The conference will continue to monitor the situation and will be prepared to make any further changes prior to the start of practice for the adjusted championship segment.
