GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) — THE NAIA announced Thursday that all tournament events will be cancelled, including those currently underway.

"The health and safety of our student-athletes, as well as all involved in our championship events, is the NAIA’s highest priority. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and NAIA leadership will work closely with our member institutions to determine the best path forward for future NAIA events, including all spring 2020 championships," reads a statement from the organization.

Georgetown College, University of the Cumberlands, Thomas More and University of Pikeville were all in the tournament.
