The Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC), of which Colby-Sawyer is a member institution, announced Monday, Nov. 2, that its council of college presidents unanimously voted to cancel all conference athletic competition for the Winter sports season. This cancellation includes men’s and women’s Alpine skiing, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s indoor track & field and men’s and women’s swimming & diving. The college will once again do everything possible to provide a safe and meaningful student-athlete experience. In accordance with all available guidelines, the college will continue to make available conditioning sessions, small group activities, additional leadership programming and practice opportunities that allow student-athletes to work together with their coaches to the fullest extent that can be done safely amid COVID-19. The college will monitor the national and regional landscape throughout spring semester and will be prepared to return to competition when it is safe to do so.
