TOWSON, Md. - July 31, 2020 - Following a unanimous vote of the Landmark Conference Executive Board, the league has postponed all conference regular season contests and championships scheduled to take place during the fall 2020 semester (thru December 31, 2020).

The conference supports institutional autonomy for its member institutions and teams to engage in athletically related activities in accordance with their local and state health guidelines and NCAA Division III rules.

The conference and its member institutions are exploring ways to provide competitive opportunities for fall student-athletes to participate in their sport during the spring semester barring local and state recommendations related to the pandemic. At present, it is the intent of the Landmark Conference to play a conference schedule and conduct league championships for fall sports in the Spring of 2021.

The Landmark will provide a status report by October 15 that will include any updates to the league’s winter and spring championships along with additional information regarding future schedules.
