The coronavirus pandemic has forced The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) to cancel a total of eight sports seasons for the fall semester -- including wrestling -- the NCAA Division III public university located in Ewing, NJ announced Friday.
Other sports which will not be competing this fall include football, men's soccer, women's soccer, field hockey, men's basketball, women's basketball, and rugby.
"Regrettably but necessarily, and in alignment with our rationale and actions in instruction, residential education, and other operations, I have decided that for health and safety reasons, we will restrict the menu of in-person student activities this fall to low human-density and low in-person contact or proximity activities only," TCNJ President Kathryn A. Foster revealed in a community letter issued Friday.
In addition to TCNJ, other NCAA Division III colleges which have canceled fall 2020 sports this past week include Bowdoin, Pratt Institute (N.Y.) and UMass-Boston.
