For at least one more year, UW-LaCrosse's baseball and men's tennis program will keep swinging. Both programs secured enough funding to be continued for the 2009-2010 season.
The funding comes from the generosity of many donors who want to be sure these programs continue at La Crosse. Both sports now have in hand the monies needed to compensate their coaches and pay minimal expenses for the coming year.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the UW-L baseball program has raised $38,927 and the men's tennis program has raised $16,850. Both programs were initially cut in cost cutting measures.
The fund raising effort isn't over with though. Both programs will have to raise considerably more money to insure the program's exsistence for years to come.
