Multiple NESCAC schools have opted out of the fall 2020 sports season due to coronavirus concerns. Bowdoin, Williams, and Amherst have all announced they will not participate in the fall. Middlebury is still undecided whether they will compete in fall sports.
Local 22/44 reached out to Middlebury for a comment:
“The situation for the fall season is fluid right now. We are still considering plans in consultation with other NESCAC schools, so it is premature to share information about any specific fall schedule at this point. We will prioritize the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and community, while working to provide meaningful experiences for our student-athletes.” said Director of Athletics Erin Quinn.
