NSIC Announces 2020-21 Wrestling Schedules

BURNSVILLE, Minn. – The NSIC has announced its wrestling (and basketball) schedules for the 2020-21 academic year. The schedules were approved by the NSIC Board of Directors with the health and safety of student-athletes, coaches, and staff as the top priority. Wrestling schedules will begin in January and schools will follow NCAA Sports Science Institute (SSI) guidelines for competition.

To mitigate COVID-19 exposure, schools will only compete against one opponent each week of the season.

The NSIC Wrestling schedule will be six duals starting the second week of January and concluding the second week of February. Schools will compete against six of its nine conference opponents. A regular-season champion will be crowned based on win percentage from the six duals.

Enhanced preseason reveals will be announced in mid-December for all winter sports via the NSIC Network and at NorthernSun.org. The reveals will include preseason coaches’ polls, preseason players of the year, preseason student-athletes to watch, team previews, and quotes from coaches.

The conference will continue to monitor the landscape and conditions surrounding the pandemic, locally, regionally, and nationally, and make any decisions or announcements, at a later date, as necessary.

Duals will be streamed at nsicnetwork.com.
