Concerns stemming from the coronavirus pandemic will prompt more changes to the fall and winter sports seasons for North Dakota high school teams.

Hillsboro-Central Valley athletic director Dave Nelson gave a glimpse into a few of the changes to the Hillsboro School Board during a meeting Thursday, Oct. 8.

For starters, the Region 2 volleyball tournament scheduled to start Nov. 9 in Northwood has been moved to alternate sites.

Teams that qualify and advance in the tournament instead will play at the home gyms of higher seeds.

“Northwood was supposed to host the whole thing, but they’ll bump it back to next year,” Nelson said.

State athletic officials have put a cap of seven runners per team taking part in the state Class B cross-country meet Oct. 24 in Jamestown as well, Nelson said.

A limit of two fans per runner will be introduced to keep crowd sizes limited at the meet, he said.

The Hillsboro-Central Valley Burros football team, currently ranked No. 2 in Class 2A, could have a chance to defend its 2019 state title at the Dakota Bowl in November at the Fargodome.
