GNAC cancels winter sports

The Great Northeast Athletic Conference has canceled winter sports for 2020-2021, but individual members can make decisions about winter participation. The conference does not sponsor wrestling, though Norwich and Johnson & Wales are member schools with wrestling programs.

Norwich has stated that, “At this time, all seven Norwich winter sports teams have the opportunity to pursue non-conference athletic intercollegiate competition beginning Jan. 1 if NCAA and State of Vermont health guidelines and regulations permit it.”

Johnson & Wales has not made a statement regarding wrestling or other sports. The Providence Journal has an article entitled “No winter sports at Johnson & Wales,” but the only citation is the GNAC release. The paper seems to have jumped the gun unless they have a source not noted.
