Sources: Cascade Conference may move volleyball regular season to Idaho

Multiple sources tell NewsWatch 12 sports the CCC is looking at the possibility of moving part of the volleyball regular season to a two-weekend event in Idaho.

MEDFORD, Ore. — For Oregon volleyball teams in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, a trip to Idaho may be in their future. Multiple sources confirm the CCC is looking at a plan that would send all eight conference volleyball teams to Idaho for two, weekend-long tournaments.

According to the sources, the College of Idaho and Lewis-Clark State College would host four teams each on two different weekends to start conference play in the CCC.

The reason the Cascade Conference leadership is looking at this option is that all Oregon schools in the CCC are currently in counties in the 'Extreme Risk' category, which only allows six people within an indoor gym. Until those counties' coronavirus case numbers meet the 'High Risk' category, volleyball is not a possibility.

The hope is the CCC will be able to shift to more traditional scheduling if coronavirus case numbers in Oregon continue their downward trend, so this tournament-style opener would only happen twice. Sources tell NewsWatch 12 Sports the hope is to be back to a more normal schedule by the week of March 19.

Oregon Tech would be the only southern Oregon school to make the trip to Idaho if the plan is approved. Southern Oregon opted out of the volleyball season in December.

The Cascade Conference is expected to make a decision on Tuesday, February 9 on whether to adopt this plan.
