NORFOLK, Va. ( – The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) will not hold its Indoor Track & Field Championships, which were set for Feb. 26-27 at the Virginia Beach Sports Center in Virginia Beach, Va., in the 2020-21 academic year.

The MEAC has seen six of its 11 indoor track & field programs opt out of the 2020-21 season due to concerns over COVID-19. Conference policy states if 50% or more institutions cannot participate in any championship, the championship for that sport will be canceled.

The five programs that did not opt out can compete during indoor season and qualify for the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships.
