No Fall Sports: New England Small College Athletic Conference

MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) -- It's been days since the ivy leagues announced they were canceling sports events for the fall semester.

On Friday, the New England Small College Athletic Conference announced it is doing the same thing.

"In keeping with public health guidance, each of our institutions has put in place physical distancing protocols, limits on travel on and off campus, and limits on the size of on-campus gatherings. Consistent with these policies, the NESCAC Presidents have decided unanimously, though with great reluctance, that NESCAC conference competition for fall sports must be canceled for fall 2020," a press release said.

This decision impacts fall sports for several colleges, including Wesleyan University, Connecticut College, and Trinity College.
