The athletic future of SUCOLI looks much better now than it did a year ago. In addition to a full time coach and athletic director we have at our disposal an athletic field and equipment and a recreation building should be ready by April 1, 1959. 

Mr. Von Mechow lost little time in getting started. In less than one month he had a cross country team working out regularly, a full schedule of intramural football in operation as well as student participation in archer, badminton, volleyball and horseshoe pits dug.

Intercollegiate competition looms as our crew team trains to encounter such rivals as Fordham St. Johns and Columbia J.V. in the spring and the following fall semester may see SUCOLI enter a cross country and basketball team into collegiate competition. 

The administration has shown that it is in favor of an all-a-round athletic program, facilities and student participation permitting. Now it is up to the students to give their whole hearted support to the program, either by actual participation in an activity or in the capacity of a spectator.
