MC puts three programs on hold

As reported by Star teammate Rhiannon Potkey last week, Moorpark College has put three athletic programs on hold because of the state budget shortfall -- wrestling, men's golf and women's golf.

Potkey's story is an in-depth look at the issues, including former two-time All-American wrestler Charles Sandlin's drive to save the wrestling program.

The suspensions are expected to save the college $85,000 to $90,000 annually. The Raiders now offer 13 sports.

"This was very, very hard because athletics is a thing that opens doors for a number of students who would not normally be here and I see it as an important part of our academic core," school president Pam Eddinger said. "But it really became about what 13 sports we could have that would touch the most amount of students and get them the most amount of exposure to move them through college."
