NEC Cancels Spring Season, Places Moratorium on Recruiting

The Northeast Conference announced on Friday that the league presidents voted via conference call this morning to cancel the spring athletic season and also put a moratorium on all on-campus and off-campus recruiting activities.

The full statement reads:

“With the evolving nature of the COVID-19 public health threat and in light of yesterday’s announcement by the NCAA to cancel the remaining NCAA championships, the Northeast Conference Presidents convened by conference call this morning and voted to cancel all competition (conference and non-conference) as well as organized and formal practices for all teams on NEC campuses for the remainder of the spring semester.  In addition, the NEC has announced a moratorium on all on- and off-campus in-person recruiting activities until further notice.”

This will end athletics at Merrimack for the season.
