The Finlandia University women’s hockey team has made the decision to not play during the 2020-21 season. The decision was based on health and safety concerns of the program.
“Obviously, we are disappointed at the lost opportunities for our women’s hockey players,” said Athletic Director Curtis Wittenberg. “Coach (Lindsay) Macy and the team have put in a lot of work and effort to this point. The health and well-being of our student-athletes takes precedent over everything else.”
Ice hockey is considered a high-risk for transmission sport for COVID-19 by the NCAA Sport Science Institute.
