Dalton State College scales back athletics due to funding shortage
DALTON, GA (WRCB) -
Dalton State College is scaling back its intercollegiate athletics program due to budget shortfalls. Four sports teams from its 10-team roster will be cut in order to achieve financial sustainability, according to Interim Athletic Director Jon Jaudon. The discontinued teams have not yet been determined.
Men’s basketball, the College’s flagship sports team, will not be eliminated.
Dalton State College President Margaret Venable say the decision on which sports to cut will be made in time for athletes wishing to transfer after this academic year to do so. The College will also work with athletes who wish to remain at Dalton State to finish out their degrees.
President Venable hopes to know by December or January what sports teams will be discontinued.
