Wayne State College Director of Athletics Mike Powicki announced today the reinstatement of the women’s golf program for the 2020-21 school year to the Wildcat athletic department.
Powicki stated the school will be hiring a coach this summer and spend the 2019-20 school year recruiting student-athletes to begin competition again in the 2020-21 school year. The women’s golf program at Wayne State College was suspended at the end of the 2012-13 school year.
“I am extremely excited to be able to bring back our women’s golf program,” remarked Powicki. “Since coming to Wayne State our institution has been very committed addressing gender equity and Title IX within our athletic department and the reinstatement of this program is another example of that commitment. I am thankful to have such great support from President Rames and our Nebraska State College System for aligning the appropriate resources to support this program the right way.”
Powicki added, “Our goal is to build a successful women’s golf program and to provide an excellent student-athlete experience. I also want to thank the Wayne Country Club Board and staff for being so supportive of Wildcat Women’s Golf being able to call that facility home. The Wayne Country Club provides an excellent home course and has a history of hosting NCAA Division II tournaments featuring NSIC and Central Region teams.
Wayne State College created the women’s golf program in 1990 and began competition in the Northern Sun Conference in the 1998-99 season before being suspended in May, 2013.
Wayne State College is a member of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference and now offers 14 sports (six male, eight female).
