WAYNE – As members with the Wayne State College baseball, softball, beach volleyball and indoor track & field team make their way back to northeast Nebraska, all NSIC competition has been suspended.
According to a release from the league office in Burnsville, Minnesota Thursday evening, all athletic activities for each of its 16-member institutions will halt immediately.
