SUNYAC joins NESCAC and NCAC in cancelling winter sports

Last week, the NESCAC and NCAC canceled winter sports schedules and championships. Both conferences will allow teams to make their own decisions about scheduling outside competition for the winter. This week, the State University of New York Athletic Conference followed suit and canceled the winter season. One thing all three of these conferences have in common is that wrestling is not a conference sport, though all three have schools in them with wrestling.

Brockport and Cortland have announced that all winter sports have been canceled, including wrestling. Oswego and Oneonta have not made announcements specific to wrestling, but it seems likely the announcements are coming. Oneonta experienced a large outbreak with over 700 student cases forcing the school to go totally remote in September, and the president of the school recently resigned.

Schools affected so far (explicitly canceled wrestling in bold)
NESCAC: Trinity, Wesleyan, Williams
NCAC: Hiram, Ohio Wesleyan, Wabash (no practice permitted 11/25-1/1)
SUNYAC: Brockport, Cortland, Oneonta, Oswego
