Carleton College in Northfield has made the decision to cancel its winter sports due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It's the first school in its conference to do so.


5 EYEWITNESS NEWS talked with the college's athletic director who said school officials saw the current COVID-19 trends heading in the wrong direction.

"As an institution, as a college itself, we have to take a look at what's in the best interest of all of our students as far as health and safety," Athletic Director Gerald Young said.
