The Northwest Conference Athletic Directors and track and field coaches met in the off season with an idea of cancelling the annual NWC Track and Field Championships held at Civic Stadium, and it was agreed upon by all 14 schools that there will no varsity meet this year to crown a Northwest Conference champion. However, there will be meets in the area to go watch track and field, specifically out in the county.
