kctrackMembers of Kaskaskia College's women's cross country team compete in the St. Louis Fall Classic, hosted by the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, in October 2019. The community college is going ahead with a fall cross country season, in the year of COVID-19.    Kaskaskia College officials and faculty are navigating the uncertainty of COVID-19 — academically and athletically — as best they can.
    The athletic aspect of this pandemic, and how the community college is handling the nearly day-to-day changes, was brought up for discussion at the July 27 board of trustees' meeting.
    Trustees reviewed the athletic schedule for fiscal year 2020-2021, which was not set as an action item.
    "I think we owe it to our coaches, and our student-athletes, and our general public" to explain that there is some uncertainty ahead with regard to the fall sports, said college president George Evans.
    As of now, Kaskaskia College has opted to move the majority of its fall sports to a spring format, with the exception of cross country.
    This is in agreement with Region 24 of the National Junior College Athletic Association.
    Evans, athletic director Cathy Karrick, and vice president of student services Dr. Susan Batchelor have been working with cross country coach Mike Hargis to ensure that the teams' seasons can start as normal.
    KC is slated to start its men's and women's running seasons Sept. 6 at the Walt Crawford Invitational, at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.
