Acknowledging that cancelling varsity sports through the 2020-21 school year will disappoint student-athletes, coaches, and fans, Ontario University Athletics announced the measure Thursday.

UWindsor athletics director Mike Havey said all Lancer sports teams will be affected, including those that do compete in OUA or U Sports play.

“The University of Windsor will continue to support the health and safety and the competitive aspirations of our student-athletes as we journey together toward a safe return to sport competition,” he added.
