11/20/2020 – Defender Athletes to Stay on Campus

Dordt University, like many higher education institutions in the area, are dismissing students for Thanksgiving break.  But student athletes will stay around to complete their pre -Christmas schedules.  This is Dordt Athletic director Ross Douma:

Douma says they are always concerned about coronavirus spread.  But that doesn’t come from competition.

Douma says the athletes are taking steps to avoid exposure to the virus.

Coronavirus has so far caused the Great Plains Athletic conference sports schedules to bend but not break.  Douma says there were disruptions in the fall and winter schedules.

Douma says the GPAC schools have taken a lesson from their spring sports teams that helps them with fall and winter schedules…communicate – and be flexible.
