Community College Suspends Athletics Programs

October 19, 2015

The College of the Albemarle, a community college in North Carolina, has indefinitely suspended its two intercollegiate teams, baseball and softball, the Associated Press reported. Board members, in approving the suspension, said they would reconsider if more funds for athletics became available. Board members said those two teams need more money, and that the college would need to add another women's team as well to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
