Dear North Central College Campus Community:

Since early August, our athletic department has been engaged in tireless efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 while also creating an environment for our student-athletes to participate in practices, conditioning, and other team activities. The health and safety of our student-athletes has been our top priority.

One of our important efforts has been regular testing of all of our student-athletes. Recently, the number of positive cases has increased significantly. Accordingly, the athletic department is suspending all practices, conditioning sessions, meetings and other team activities until Friday, November 6.

During this time, the athletics department will implement additional mitigation measures, including further expansion of COVID testing, a deep cleaning and sanitation of our athletics facilities, and will reinforce with our student-athletes, coaches and staff the importance of compliance with regard to the College’s policies, procedures, and guidelines both on and off campus. The athletic facilities will remain open, and members of the campus community are reminded to follow all health and safety protocols.

The athletic department will reassess a return to team activities, practices, and conditioning closer to Friday, November 6, and will provide an update accordingly.


Marty Sauer
Vice President for Enrollment Management and Athletics
