The University of Arkansas at Monticello will suspend all conference athletic activities – practices and competitions – for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year, effective immediately.

The decision follows the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s cancellation of all championships for the year.

UAM and the Great American Conference’s top priority is the health of student-athletes, staff, and campus communities.

Any further updates on the situation will be posted to and its corresponding social media outlets.
