As the COVID-19 virus continues to impact the country, the Gulf South Conference has decided to officially cancel all athletic competition and championships in the 2020 spring season.

Other countable athletic-related activities are suspended through the end of May. Activities outside of those parameters are governed by the NCAA rules within each institution’s discretion.

Recent guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the NCAA’s requirements for waivers for affected student-athletes were significant factors in this decision by the league’s board of directors.

The GSC will move forward with all academic awards for spring athletes, as well as the top-10 awards, Commissioner’s Trophies and the GSC Hall of Fame Class of 2020. Other conference honors in the spring will not be awarded.
