Ivy League Cancels All Sports Through the New Year

No sports before Jan 1, 2021.  

Fall sports canceled; decision will be made about Winter sports at a later date.

Does this basically mean Ivy League wrestling will not seriously compete this coming academic year.  How are they going to be competitive come March if they can't get on the mat until January?

Because nobody else is going to compete until January at the earliest-the other schools just haven’t announced it yet. Hopefully the season will run from January through April.

No, since the prohibition applies to *competition*, not training or other sports-related activities, pursuant to school/locality/government standards of safety.  The wrestling program can continue as "usual" but without the fall semester (which runs into December) competitions.

The Harvard wrestling team will be practicing in the fall semester when all classes are online?  That would be interesting.

Does that mean no Harvard students will be on campus?  I know Cornell has committed to using hybrid teaching (both in person and online) in part to allow international students to remain on campus - although that also would be helpful to athletic teams as well.

Harvard is doing some students on campus at a time with I think mostly online teaching
