Presidents seek cost-savings for Centennial Conference athletics
The cost-saving measures “will not compromise the experiences of our student-athletes,” Coley said.
“The experiences of our student-athletes have produced some of the most successful graduates, and indeed, some of this nation’s most influential leaders,” she added.
The Centennial Conference is an NCAA Division III all-sports conference representing 11 national liberal-arts colleges and universities located in Pennsylvania and Maryland. The Conference has had two students receive Rhodes Scholarships, including Swarthmore's Cait Mullarkey last fall, while 154 have earned Academic All-America honors and 55 have been recipients of NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships. In addition, more than 700 were named to the Conference's Academic Honor Roll, which recognizes students who have a 3.40 cumulative grade point average and have made a significant contribution to their athletic teams.
