LOCALLY, THE GREAT PLAINS ATHLETIC CONFERENCE HAS TEN MEMBER SCHOOLS WHO PLAY FOOTBALL, INCLUDING MORNINGSIDE COLLEGE AND BRIAR CLIFF UNIVERSITY, AS WELL AS NEIGHBORING NORTHWESTERN COLLEGE IN ORANGE CITY AND DORDT UNIVERSITY IN SIOUX CENTER.

G-PAC COMMISSIONER COREY WESTRA SAYS THE CONFERENCE IS PLANNING ON PLAYING FOOTBALL, WITH A 9 GAME CONFERENCE SCHEDULE AND NO NON-CONFERENCE GAMES:

STUDENT ATHLETES WILL BEGIN PRACTICING ON AUGUST 15TH AT THE TEN G-PAC SCHOOLS WHO PLAY FOOTBALL.

WESTRA SAYS THE SEASON OPENS IN SIOUX CITY WITH TWO TIME DEFENDING CHAMPION MORNINGSIDE RANKED NUMBER ONE IN THE PRE-SEASON NATIONAL POLL HOSTING FIFTH RANKED NORTHWESTERN:

WHAT’S NOT KNOW YET IS HOW MANY FANS AND FAMILY MEMBERS OF PLAYERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND THE GAMES, IF ANY.

WESTRA FORMED A “RETURN TO PLAY” TASK FORCE THAT HAS BEEN MEETING THE PAST SIX WEEKS ON HOW TO RESUME FALL SPORTS.
