January 29, 2021 1:15pm

College President Phil Hanlon announced the reinstatement of five athletic teams — men’s and women’s golf, men’s lightweight rowing and men’s and women’s swimming and diving — in an email Friday morning. The programs, which the College cut last July due to admissions and budgetary constraints, will be reinstated through at least 2024-2025, pending a Title IX review.


The athletics department consolidated phase one and two of return-to-sport protocol, allowing both individual and small group activities in the first phase.
