Lawrence release today. No mention of sports.

Lawrence sets plans for fall term; partners with Bellin Health for COVID-19 testing

APPLETON – Bellin Health will perform regular COVID-19 testing at Lawrence University during the coming academic year, part of a comprehensive plan for reopening the campus for fall term, university officials announced today.

The Appleton campus will open as planned for the fall term, which begins Sept. 14, with both students and faculty having the option to be on campus or remain remote. Classes will be offered in a mix of in-person and distance learning, with physical distancing requirements in place on campus.

“The university has contracted with Bellin Health to be our health care partner as we adapt as a community to living with COVID-19,” Lawrence President Mark Burstein said. “They will provide on-campus testing for all community members. We are also fortunate to have long-term existing relationships with Ascension and ThedaCare health systems in the Fox Valley, who will continue to supply essential local support.”

Students will be tested for COVID-19 by Bellin medical personnel when they arrive this fall and again 14 days later. Faculty and staff will be tested as they return to campus. Students, faculty, and staff living or working on campus will then need to complete a daily screening of temperature and symptoms. The university will continue to collaborate with the Appleton Health Department for contact tracing for anyone who tests positive for the virus
.
The academic year at Lawrence will look different than any before. Physical distancing rules will be in place and all members of the community will be required to wear masks in all indoor public spaces, including classrooms, as well as outdoor spaces where physical distancing is not possible. All members of the Lawrence community who opt to be on campus will need to sign a community pledge agreeing to follow the distancing and face-covering rules.

Lawrence’s pandemic planning team consulted with health experts, both within Wisconsin and around the country, and with various faculty, students, staff, and trustees through the shared governance process, Burstein said.

“Our goal was to ensure that every Lawrentian will have the opportunity to learn, teach, and work as fully and safely as possible,” he said.

Swanson Named Defensive Coordinator
From Asst. AD/Athletics Communications, June 16, 2020 | Football
by Dan Lukes, dan.lukes@snc.edu, (920) 403-4077

DE PERE - St. Norbert College has named Riley Swanson as its new football defensive coordinator, head coach Dan McCarty announced today.

"We are excited to announce the addition of Riley Swanson as our new defensive coordinator," McCarty said. "Riley brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from various backgrounds to our program. His energy, enthusiasm, personality are contagious. Most importantly, he's a players' coach and believes in the most fundamental aspect of our program - building long-lasting relationships with our players and treating them like our own sons."

Swanson arrives at St. Norbert after spending the 2019 season on the coaching staff at Finlandia University, where he was the defensive coordinator and also coached defensive backs. The Lions led the NCAA Division III in fewest passing yards allowed per game at 99.3.

Swanson spent the 2017-18 at NCAA Division II University of West Florida. He was the Argonauts' video coordinator and running backs coach in 2017. A year later, Swanson coached the cornerbacks and was the assistant special teams coordinator. Swanson was West Florida's communications coordinator those two seasons.

Swanson was a four-year letterwinner at Wake Forest as a defensive back. He played in 47 games for the Demon Deacons and finished his career with 179 tackles, seven interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Wake Forest won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship his senior year and played in the Orange Bowl.

Following his collegiate career, Swanson signed with the Buffalo Bills in 2007 as an undrafted free agent. His football career continued in the Arena Football League, spending the 2010, 2011 and 2013 seasons with the Arizona Rattlers and the 2012 season with the Tampa Bay Storm. Arizona won Arena Bowl XXVI in 2013.

Swanson graduated in 2006 from Wake Forest with a degree in religion.

This is MWC based story but has non conference implications and guessing the general discussion applies.

This is a MWC story but a small MIAC link. And I’m guessing the discussion applies, too

"While we expect that athletic competition will occur in the fall, we do not yet have complete information on whether or not athletes will be required to move to campus early, as they have done in the past. The athletics department remains in close and frequent communication with the Midwest Conference and will inform student athletes as soon as they have more information."

At some point, do the Wisconsin private schools end up in one league, the Illinois in another, and the Iowa in a third. Instead of little shuffles, such as SNC moving to the NACC, just recognize the travel costs as a driver, and do it that way.

Not saying that’s perfect, ideal or desirable. But it clearly was one of SNC’s considerations - to lose trips to Jacksonville, Galesburg, etc, for FDL, Chicagoland, etc.

Not shocked. It is their natural home. MWC will need to have some serious discussions about where they are headed, I think. With Beloit in trouble, Ripon sniffing around a move, the cost of trips to IC and Iowa...

Bye bye, Macalester.

How big can the NACC get? 2 divisions? 3?
