The conference was split into two divisions for the spring season, with teams playing an eight-game schedule in their own division. FHSU will play a home-and-home schedule against North Division opponents Missouri Western, Nebraska-Kearney, Northwest Missouri and Washburn. Divisional standings at the end of the year will determine matchups for the MIAA spring tournament, slated for April 16-17.
