Wayne (Neb.) State drops men's, women's golf

Friday, May 31, 2013

WAYNE, Neb. — Wayne State College is dropping its men’s and women’s golf programs to save money.

Athletic director Mike Powicki said Wednesday that Wayne State, which is an NCAA Division II school in northeast Nebraska, does not have the budget to appropriately fund the programs. The decision affects five men and five women.

Golfers who are on scholarship will continue to receive aid through the 2013-14 academic year.

The number of varsity sports Wayne sponsors will drop from 15 to 13. Golf will be offered as a club sport for men and women.

The University of Nebraska at Kearney will be the only Division II school in the state sponsoring men’s and women’s varsity golf. Chadron State has a women’s golf team.
