Patriot League Makes Cuts to Save Money

March 25, 2009

The Patriot League – a eight-member Division I National Collegiate Athletic Association conference – has adopted a cost-efficiency plan to help save money during the current economic downturn. Among other changes, the conference will set limits on the number of individuals that can travel with a team, eliminate awards banquets at its championships, and begin using teleconferencing for meetings of its head coaches. Carolyn Schlie Femovich, the conference’s executive director, said that more changes could be on the way: “These are things that seemed to be pretty self-evident. A number of other things we’ll come back to – perhaps qualifying standards, scheduling of championships and mileage parameters for officials.”
