COVID-19 protocols force decision on men’s hockey event
The 11th Northfield Savings Bank Holiday Tournament, which had been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, has been canceled because of COVID-19 protocols.
The tournament won’t be rescheduled during the 2021-22 season.
Norwich, ranked eighth nationally among Division III men’s hockey teams, was to include 11th-ranked University of New England and Hamilton and Williams colleges at Kreitzberg Arena.
Norwich University officials and Northfield Savings Bank explored all possibilities to keep some form of competition, but ultimately couldn’t.
The Northfield Savings Bank Holiday Tournament will return in 2022-23 with the State University of New York, Canton (independent), Trinity College (England Small College Athletic Conference) and Curry (Commonwealth Coast Conference) in the field.
Norwich University’s men’s hockey team is scheduled to travel to No. 4-ranked Hobart College on Jan. 7 for a 7 p.m. faceoff at The Cooler in Geneva, New York. The Cadets will play Elmira College for the first time in New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) competition at 4 p.m. Jan. 8 at the Murray Athletic Center in Pine Valley, New York.
