MWC, NACC Athletic Competition Suspended Until January 1, 2021

DE PERE - The Midwest Conference and Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference announced today it has suspended intercollegiate athletics competition until January 1, 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

St. Norbert's primary athletics affiliation is in the MWC, while the Green Knights compete in the NACC during the fall in men's and women's golf. The Northern Collegiate Hockey Association, the conference affiliation for men's and women's hockey, has not yet made a determination for its schedule.

"Unfortunately, competing intercollegiately in the near future is just not feasible due to the current health crisis," St. Norbert athletics director Tim Bald said. "We are currently exploring our options to give our student-athletes a meaningful experience in the interim and returning to intercollegiate competition when conditions allow."

"Athletics will always be an important part of the student experience here at the college and our staff will be in contact with our athletes in the very near future."

The ongoing suspension of athletic competition marks the first time since World War II that St. Norbert will not field a football team for intercollegiate competition. The Green Knights last had a football season cancelled in 1945.

St. Norbert sports for 2020 spring championships were cancelled on March 15 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
