WHITEFISH -- Frontier Conference commissioner Kent Paulson announced Wednesday afternoon that the league has officially canceled all spring activities, both in- and out-of-season sports, which includes spring football drills.
“After careful review of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Frontier Conference administrative leadership team is recommending that all spring sporting events, which include both in- and out-of-season activities, will be canceled for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year," Paulson said in his release.
The news comes as no surprise after the NAIA announced earlier in the week it had officially shut down its spring activities, which included numerous championships like softball and track and field.
"This position mirrors that of the NAIA and falls in line with the script that various agencies at the national, state and county levels are also following during these difficult times as we navigate through uncharted waters," Paulson's statement continued. "It is the expectation of the Frontier Conference Board of Directors that all institutions in our league will support the stipulations put forth and that they will unilaterally be followed as we continue to collaboratively work together to support each other as all families are doing in this time of great need.”
Frontier Conference football teams had previously announced postponements to their spring drills, but now follow the likes of the Montana Grizzlies and Montana State Bobcats in canceling those organized drills completely.
