The NCAA made the decision to cancel winter championships on March 12th.

The NCAA made the decision to cancel winter championships on March 12th, due to the threat of the spread of COVID-19.

Both Pittsburg State and Missouri Southern were already at the indoor track and field national championships in Birmingham, Alabama when they got the news their season was over.

Unlike their spring sport counterparts, winter sport athletes have not received an extension or waiver on eligibility, meaning for seniors who were on their final semester of eligibility, their careers are over.

Missouri Southern’s Emily Presley is one of those student-athletes.

Presley was on her final semester of eligibility, and was ranked #1 in the nation in the pole vault heading into the indoor national championships.

Because of the cancellation, she was not able to compete for her 4th pole vault national title.
