Linn-Benton resurrects Women's Basketball Program

After a two year absence, Linn-Benton Community College announced plans to re-establish its women's basketball program for the 2015-16 season.

The decision came after months of work with community members to create a program structure that fosters high academic completion rates among student-athletes and generates significant involvement of the community in supporting the program. 

The same model that resurrected the baseball program is also being used to support women's basketball: a mix of school contributions, student contributions and community fundraising. 

At least 40 percent of players will come from the Linn-Benton service district and 80 percent from within the state of Oregon.

LBCC's athletic programs are committed to student-athlete completion of academic goals, with an expectation that players will accomplish a 50 percent completion rate and a high rate of transfer to four-year institutions.

"Re-establishing our women's basketball program is a win-win for our students, our athletic program and our community, creating opportunities for student athletes and the community to engage in a program that promotes student completion as well as a positive athletic experience", said LBCC athletic director Randy Falk.
