Norwich University’s sports teams eagerly returned to action as coronavirus restrictions eased and vaccinations rolled out. Here’s a chronological 2021 recap.

Feb. 27: Women’s ice hockey and women’s basketball compete in first intercollegiate athletic contests in nearly 11 months after  COVID-19 pandemic-forced hiatus.

Castleton's Stone Stelzl scored in the game’s final four minutes, snapping a streak that spanned 730:26 of ice time and 11 shutouts and 407 calendar days. Until Stelzl scored, Norwich hadn’t ceded a goal since Jan. 24, 2020.

The previous record for consecutive shutout minutes by a NCAA Division III men's ice hockey team was the 2005-06 St. Norbert squad that held a streak of 337:22. The 2019-20 and 2020-21 Norwich men's hockey teams combined to more than double it. 

Apr. 18: Baseball wins six straight games for first time since 1989.
