SDSU Women's Teams Set to Join WAC in '90

June 22, 1989

As a result of the Western Athletic Conference's merger with the High Country Athletic Conference Wednesday, six San Diego State women's teams will compete in the WAC starting in the fall of 1990, said Linda Keck, SDSU sports information assistant.

San Diego State, currently a member of the Big West Conference, has seven women's teams, and all will remain in the Big West this coming school year. Women's soccer, a new program, will not join the WAC.

"I'm real excited," said Rudy Suwara, SDSU's volleyball coach. "I think it will certainly cost us more money, but it will result in greater publicity for the women's programs."

Brigham Young, Colorado State, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming are expected to compete with SDSU in the newly expanded WAC conference.


Free instructional clinics designed to introduce youngsters to the basics of golf will be offered at 11 San Diego County courses today, Friday, June 29 and 30. Anyone 13 or under can attend the clinics, which will feature PGA members.

Interested golfers should contact a golf course to reserve their spots. Those attending all four days will receive a free golf club and souvenir visor.
