The Division I Council on Monday voted to allow schools to provide spring-sport student-athletes an additional season of competition and an extension of their period of eligibility.
Members also adjusted financial aid rules to allow teams to carry more members on scholarship to account for incoming recruits and student-athletes who had been in their last year of eligibility who decide to stay. In a nod to the financial uncertainty faced by higher education, the Council vote also provided schools with the flexibility to give students the opportunity to return for 2020-21 without requiring that athletics aid be provided at the same level awarded for 2019-20. This flexibility applies only to student-athletes who would have exhausted eligibility in 2019-20.

Despite the 2020 season being cut short, Inside Lacrosse is going to publish its 2020 Media All-Americans list this week. The selections are voted on by media members who vote in the weekly Media Poll and consists of 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Teams, and Honorable Mentions.
I vote in the weekly Media Poll, but for the IL Media All-Americans list, I always submit a site ballot with help from Adam, Jake, & Ryan. Jake in particular deserves much credit for helping to put together much of our list for 2020.
Always love the feedback from our fans https://t.co/AoOBljyvT8— College Crosse (@College_Crosse) March 29, 2020
