MCC sports update
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - With fall sports coming around the corner and the coronavirus still impacting the nation, the Meridian Community College Athletics Department has had to modify its fall sports season.
MCC’s men and women soccer teams will report back to campus on August 5th for preseason practice. The teams who normal start play in mid-August will now start their seasons on September 1 to give everyone a chance to get used to the new procedures set in place to keep everyone safe from COVID-19.
MCC athletic director Sander Atkinson said at this point sports will go on but modifications will be put in place to keep everyone safe.
“We will be monitoring people’s symptoms and doing things you heard about like temperature checks, symptom checks, and making people self-identify symptoms,” Atkinson said.
The school also is setting up a testing plan for identifying people who need to get tested.
