Clarke University has announced a “no spectator” policy for Pride home athletic events through at least the end of the month. Clarke’s intercollegiate athletic season will begin on September 5 with cross country as well as men’s and women’s soccer. Women’s volleyball opens the season the next day on September 6th, women’s golf on September 11th, and the Pride football team opens the season on September 12th.
The Heart of American Athletic Conference announced member schools would be allowed to have a fall sports schedule and practices began August 12th.
School officials say they will revisit the spectator guidelines in the near future.
