Missouri Valley Conference Commissioner Doug Elgin announced Wednesday that Illinois State University will serve as host for the 2020 Missouri Valley Conference Cross Country and Volleyball Championships this fall.

The 2020 MVC Cross Country Championship will be hosted at the Weibring Golf Club on Oct. 30. The women's 6K race and the men's 8K race will be run around the golf course that annually hosts a fall invitational meet. Illinois State is hosting the MVC Cross Country Championship for the first time since 2012, when Illinois States’ women's team won on their home course.

Illinois State will also be the host of the 2020 MVC Volleyball Championship inside Redbird Arena. The six-team tournament will be held on Thanksgiving weekend Nov. 26-28. Illinois State will serve as host for the 10th time in its history and for the first time since 2017.
