The St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference released its spring sports schedules on Thursday, as well as a full plan on how the 2021 SLIAC sports seasons will look. The SLIAC, of course, is the NCAA Division III conference which features Iowa Wesleyan, a school that has yet to see an official game be played in any sport this school year.

Before the 2020 fall seasons could get underway, the SLIAC was forced to postpone every fall sport until the spring season. The winter sports were evetually pushed back to January of 2021, and since they have been pushed back even further. The SLIAC season will now have to wait until late February for those sports.

The SLIAC also made changes to how the postseason would work. Due to a shortened season, the conference has decided to expand the majority of conference tournaments to include all members of the SLIAC, instead of just the Top-4 teams. The sport of baseball will stick with the original model of a four-team tournament.

Full plans for the 2021 SLIAC spring season can be found on SLIAC’s website, and full schedules for all sports can be found at iwtigers.com. Listed below are the updated conference schedules for IW sports teams.
