The Athletic Department at SUNY Maritime announced, with regret, that Mens Tennis, Womens Basketball, and Mens Wrestling will not be offered for participation in the 2007-2008 academic year.
“Due to monetary constraints and low participation rates the last three seasons in these sports, it is necessary to discontinue them. Hopefully, at a later date this year, we can discuss their re- instatement”, states Maritime Athletic Director Russ Ketcham.
Maritime College offers 20 Varsity sports, as well as numerous club sports to its nearly 1200 students, one of the highest offering levels of any NCAA Division III program in the country.
