Wright County Conference

Jordan is joining the Wright County Conference starting in the 2020-21 season.

That conference will look different after just one season for Jordan after three WCC schools announced they will be leaving the conference after the 2020-21 season.

New Prague, Orono and Waconia will leave the WCC after the upcoming school year and join the Metro West Conference for the 2021-22 season.

The WCC is separated into two divisions — East and West — and Jordan is in the East Division for the 2020-21 school year, as are the three schools that are leaving.

That leaves five teams in the WCC East Division for the 2021-22 season — Jordan, Holy Family, Delano, Hutchinson and Mound-Westonka.

The WCC athletic directors met last week to discuss the options of either moving current WCC members around into new divisions, or adding new schools to the conference.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 39th Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend, will be held virtually, the marathon organizers, Twin Cities in Motion announced on Tuesday.

“TCM made the decision with an appreciation for the disappointment it will cause, you, our runners,” TCM said in the announcement. “The decision was guided by public health officials and the Twin Cities In Motion medical directors. It was made with the safety of participants, volunteers, spectators, and the community at large foremost in mind.”

All TCM 2020 virtual events involve self-reported times for the distance and events you registered. Runners will choose a date and time to run the event and submit the time during the event’s virtual dates.

Twin Cities in Motion will provide a partial credit on entry fees paid for in-person races shifted to the virtual format. The current entry fee for the marathon was $125.
