WATERVILLE, Maine - The presidents and administrators of the NAC have closely monitored the rapidly developing situation with the COVID-19 virus. Based on the health and safety risks, as well as our responsibility as community leaders, and in following the recommendations of the NCAA as well as federal and state governmental and health agencies, the NAC has canceled all athletic activities including championships, effective immediately (March 17, 2020) and for the remainder of the spring 2020 season. This includes all athletic events for Husson University.
"Administrators across the conference worked tirelessly to maintain some semblance of athletics on campus, but must now make the difficult yet prudent decision to cancel spring sports in an effort to protect our communities," said Presidents' Council Chair, Dr. Elaine Collins. "We are deeply saddened by the impact this situation has on our campuses and across our student population."
"I would like to thank the presidents, athletic administrators, coaches, and staff for their steadfast leadership over the past week and moving forward as they support student athletes in the NAC," Commissioner Marcella Zalot said. "Our hearts go out to every student athlete impacted by the loss of their spring seasons."
The NAC remains committed to our mission of providing transformational opportunities for student athletes, and will continue to support member institutions and student-athletes as we navigate these unprecedented times.
