NCAA Meet cannot happen in Spring/Summer

1) We have another 6-8 weeks, minimum, of physical distancing
2) No time to train/taper
3) Pivot to Olympic Trials
4) Summer schedule

I have tentatively proposed an early Fall meet for those who qualified for NCAAs (no extra eligibility required). I would exclude those athletes who have already turned professional. This is not a perfect solution, but it wouldn't disrupt next year, finances, and plans for the future. I just don't think it is practical to allow student/athletes (most of whom should be graduating by this Spring) to enroll for another year of school and have these athletes bumping up against the incoming class.

If the NCAA grants some relief, we will make it work, but I don't think many of the graduating student/athletes would take advantage of the opportunity (at least not ours).
