UW Oshkosh, UW-Stevens Points and UW-Green Bay announce athletics’ return on access campuses
OSHKOSH, Wis. (WSAW) – Some () campuses in the University of Wisconsin system will see the return of athletics this fall. After taking a break from sports during the COVID-19 pandemic, UW-Stevens Point’s Wausau and Marshfield campuses will be offering women’s volleyball, men’s basketball, and men’s and women’s tennis in the fall of 2021. Other two-year UW campuses bringing back athletics include UW-Green Bay (Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan Campuses) and UW Oshkosh – Fond du Lac and Fox Cities. Together these schools will make up the newly formed Wisconsin Competitive Sports League.
League membership schools will compete against each other in a conference format and have the flexibility to schedule contests against other comparable programs both in and out of state.“The opportunity to continue to provide a pathway for students to engage in competitive sports is exciting,” said Corey King, vice chancellor for University Inclusivity and Student Affairs for UW-Green Bay. “This partnership between the three universities is a definitive example of our collective desire to create the best student experience possible.”
