If this thing keeps getting worse.. not going to college might not be the biggest problem we'll face

It's going to be tough for 22's more so than 21's. The 21's that aren't committed yet were going to struggle to find anything other than D3 options anyway.

Anyone have thoughts on how the NESCAC and other high academic D3 schools will handle recruiting for the 21 class if the summer club season does not play out ?

Most of the high academic schools are working their lists now. My daughter has been on some visits this winter and spring. All say they can't or won't offer spots until they see junior grades. Some have made it clear (without an actual promise yes I know) that she has a spot if she wants it come July. Assuming grades and test scores hold up. Others have been less concrete, saying they like her a lot but since they can't offer spots til July anyway, they will watch HS and Summer games, and late spring camps. Now that HS games are all on hold and seasons may be cancelled, I guess it depends on how much they saw of a kid before the shutdown. If they had a good look in the fall or last summer, or at a camp early this spring, they may not need another look. I imagine it will be tougher for kids who are just emailing D3 coaches fresh at this point. But a lot of these schools were still filling in spots in the 2020 class this winter, so like everyone else, what the heck do I know?

Also, I bet spots (some, not a ton) may open at a lot of programs. Girls who have committed far from home may decommit if COVID19 ends up affecting their families. A season or a year without lacrosse may lead some girls and families to prioritize other things. Some may not miss it that much.

Committed 21's, are you hearing anything from your college coaches about relief with regard to standardized testing?

My suggestion is to have your daughter contact with the coaches. My daughter had it narrowed down to 2, but this put the breaks on everything. The coaches have been very helpful guiding her through the new challenges, and understand that everyone is in the same boat.
And the poster above is correct, all the high academic schools wait until the end of junior year for grades and test scores before they get serious with you. If your daughter didn't take the SAT/ACT in the fall or early winter, some of the schools will be "test optional". But I don't know if they are just saying that. My daughter took tests in the fall, and was preparing to take them again in the spring.
My advice is to have your daughter email/text the coaches and set up a phone call. They will guide her in what they want. They all got back to her the same day because they are home anyway.
