The College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) released their winter 2021 competition schedules and their spring 2021 schedules for the traditional fall sports. Carthage, CCIW, and NCAA officials will continue to monitor federal, state, local, and campus conditions and testing availability, and make changes to schedules as necessary. The CCIW will not keep official conference standings, host official conference tournaments, or announce conference awards. All teams may compete against conference and non-conference opponents after completing their currently proposed CCIW schedules.

Check out Carthage schedules on our Athletics website at each team’s page.

Due to state and local restrictions, as well as campus visitor policies, no spectators will be allowed at any competition at this time.
