SMC cancels football program - end of an era
Via email from the President of Saint Mary's College of California - Brother Craig Franz,
After a lengthy review of our athletic programs and after receiving the recommendations of a task force formed last November, the Board of Trustees, with my support, has voted to end our participation in intercollegiate football, effective immediately.No wonder they were hesitant to join the Great West Conference. I know it's corny, but I'll sorely miss going to cheer along with my fellow alum our galloping, losing Gaels. Sigh.
