“The Covid-19 pandemic presents us with many unprecedented challenges as a conference. The PAC is doing everything in its power to provide a safe ‘Return to Sport’ framework for the fall 2020 semester,” said PAC Commissioner Joe Onderko. “There are certainly aspects of this public health challenge that are clearly beyond our control. By focusing on what we can control, we hope to maximize the possibility of holding a legitimate, comprehensive fall sports season while protecting the health of our student-athletes to the best of our ability.”

The PAC membership consists of Carnegie-Mellon, Geneva, Grove City, Washington & Jefferson, Waynesburg, Thiel, Westminster, Case Western Reserve, Saint Vincent, Chatham, Bethany and Franciscan

“The PAC’s Health and Safety Working Group has been very busy creating best practice guidelines, recommendations and suggestions for all of the members of our conference with respect to bringing not only our student-athletes, but our student bodies as a whole, back to campus in the safest and healthiest way possible,” said Mark Lesako, associate director of athletics and head athletic trainer at Washington & Jefferson College. “Obviously these are very challenging and fluid times right now, but we are doing our best to develop best practices with the information we are receiving from our federal, state and local entities. It is our hope that everyone will continue to practice good hygiene and social distancing while doing their best to stay healthy as we prepare for our return to campus.”

Fall sports in the PAC include football, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis and volleyball.
