GNAC Releases Statement About Fall 2020 Sports

Winthrop, Mass. -- The Great Northeast Athletic Conference office has released the following statement regarding Fall 2020 sports:

GNAC colleges and universities in six states in New England may individually make plans for non-conference competitions in the Spring semester 2021 for Fall sports 2020 for which the NCAA will not sponsor a 2020-21 championship. Decisions about participation of GNAC institutions in Fall 2020 sports for which the NCAA will sponsor a tournament (golf and tennis) will be made in mid-February 2021. While the GNAC will make decisions about conference play for Spring 2021 sports in mid-February, regardless of the conference decision, individual institutions may conduct competition consistent and in compliance with local and state regulations and conditions.

Johnson & Wales has not made any formal decisions on whether fall sports will be allowed to participate in spring competition. Administrators will continue to monitor the COVID situation and determine an appropriate course of action at a later date.
