The statement, released by Wabash Athletics on Wednesday afternoon, reads:
"Wabash College joins with the other members of the North Coast Athletic Conference and will suspend intercollegiate athletics competition through December 31, 2020. The conference, which had previously been working toward a modified fall schedule built around a health and safety plan developed by the athletic and medical staffs of member schools, was forced to re-evaluate its plan following new guidance released last week by the NCAA.
All of the College's sports programs will be affected, including those sports with non-traditional fall seasons (golf and tennis) and those not affiliated with the NCAC (wrestling and volleyball)."
In-person classes are set to resume on August 12th on Wabash's Crawfordsville campus.
